Zack born 09/28/07 @ 31 weeks. Dx silent reflux @ 6 mo. Now not so silent. Switched to Elecare @ 9 mo. On Prevacid 15mg 1x daily. Looking to stop the puke and gain some lbs.
Puke stopped about 24 months and he's learning to eat...very slowly.
Still on prevacid and periactin.
Digestive Enzymes
Anyone used them? I have a super puker and he has DGE but did not respond well to Reglan and Erythro...Reglan worked for a while then seemed to increase the puke. I just thught i might try something enw...we are starting probiotics, too.

i went to a health food store a while back and there was a big selection of different digestive enzymes. the lady was a pushy salesperson and it made it hard to take her seriously. she didn't even believe that a person could be deficient in sucrase which damaged her credibility to me. ANYWAY, both my mother in law and my brother's g/f have had great success with digestive enzymes. they have found cheap ones at walmart. both have digestive issues, mil has IBD and g/f has lactose intolerance and other GI issues. both have reported that digestive enzymes have helped them feel much better and able to eat and digest comfortably.

another forum i belong to suggested a lot of different things that included enzymes. i will cut and paste here for you just so you can look into them. a few people on this board have said their children have had great success with this combo. sorry- baby woke up! i'll paste it later!

Me too!! I was wondering the exact same thing today as I read about them this morning. Too funny. Reglan has helped us some, but his emptying scan just showed some delay and he still will go hours without eating.
