DS #1 (7/05) - Just ReDX'd Refluxer! Prevacid Solutab starting 4/8/09. Lots of food and environmental allergies. Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, Speech Delays, Developmental Delays, Severe Muscle Tone Weakness.
DS #2 (1/08) ReDX'd refluxer. Milk and soy allergies with Soy Lecithin allergies. Oat milk drinker, Rice protein powder, DHA, and vitamins added for bulk and needed nutrition. Weak muscle tone, slightly developmentally delayed, SPD confirmed.
Prevacid Ingredients?
Does anyone have a detailed list of exactly what's in Prevacid Solutabs? I don't need the exact amounts, just a run down (including any preservatives or thickening agents) of ingredients like you would find on a food item.

Nevermind, just found it. Is it possible, however, for a child that's allergic to milk to be allergic to lactose monohydrate since it's derived from a milk sugar? Are they from dairy, therefore dairy allergic people could react to it?

Julie - I have three children. My youngest Katie is my refluxer. My first Ben was very colicy and is ADHD. My middle Jakob is pretty easy going. Katie had it bad as a baby no sleep for two years. She was on Nutramagin, Prevacid and Zantac. Thought we were through it but after age three it came back big time. After her scope she was put on Prevacid 45mg a day and mylanta as needed. Scope was in Sept. Showed damage in stomach and espophogus. It took about 7 months of medication and Reflux diet for her to start feeling better.
Most doctors will tell you that the amount is so small that it would not have an impact. However, some moms on here know that their kids can't take the solutabs because of the lactose.

I agree with Julie... I've heard several moms have problems with the solutabs. That doesn't mean your child will but a lot of these kids are pretty sensitive so you are smart to do your research. :)

Here's the reason I am asking. When my son drinks milk or soy, he has horrible, horrible diarrhea. We discovered that he also does this with soy lecithin. Most kids that are allergic to soy are not allergic to soy lecithin. It's one of those "too small of an amount of soy and how it's processed" things. My son is allergic and has horrible diarrhea when he has it in a food. So, we moved to oat milk and problem was solved. He started to sleep through the night and have wonderful diapers. They were normal. Then we started back on the Prevacid. Nights are horrible again and his diapers are returning to how they are on dairy and soy. The only thing in the ingredient list I can see that he's ever shown a reaction to is the milk derivitive. I was wondering if it honestly could be that. Now, is there anything that works as well as Prevacid does? If so, what is it?

This is our dd, Alessandra. Dx with GER 10/07. Ran the gamut with meds and now done with them (crossed fingers). Using magnesium, probiotics and prebiotic supplements. With the exception of teething and general sassy attitude, all is well now. They really CAN grow out of it!
There are 2 other common PPI's used - Nexium and Prilosec. These, like any other drug, may or may not work for your little one. We used Prilosec with no success, but it very well could have been the compounding wasn't done correctly. Nexium and Prevacid also come in capsules that have no dairy in them - might be worth asking about.

There are the Prevacid capsules. You could use these if you are not splitting the dose am/pm. Would have to use a syringe with water to admisnister.

There is also a compounded form of prevacid that you could use. You have to be very careful to find a good pharmacy to formulate it for you, it is only good for 2 weeks and I believe it has to be refrigerated.

There is Nexium and Prilosec. The nexium has the option of capsules or granual packets.

You can run these options by your doctor to see what he/she thinks.

Molly 7/10/07 the reason I'm here!
My dd has food allergies so I also belong to the kidswithfoodallergies board. There was just a thread within the past few days about this. Someone called the company and they said the strawberry flavor they use also has soy lecithin.
