Erythromycin allergy warning
Hey everyone! I just talked to the lab that makes erythromycin. The lab tech said that yes it does contain dairy such as whey and casien. That's exactly what Kody can't have and that would explain his whole problem with that med. I'm so glad now that I yanked him off of that. We were going backwards and thought we weren't. Thank you so much Jeddsmommy for suggesting to look that up. I'm still waiting to see what the gi wants to do. But I just wanted to let anyone who has a mpi that they shouldn't use erythro. for motility. Whew I'm not going crazy. I wonder how long that will take to get out of his system now. Poor guy!

Wow! Holden is MPSI and on Erythromycin. Worked great for the first week and all last week he has been so much worse and is now congested. That is CRAZY! My pedi took him off of it today and back on reglan.

It worked good for Kody but something didn't seem right with him while he was on it. It reminded me of when he was so uncomfortable when I had dairy. It stopped working as well for him after that first week too and then it got really bad. I didn't know that Holden was mspi too. Our boys sound so much alike. I hope we both find some relief for them soon. We haven't tried reglan yet. I guess the ppi first to see if it helps.
Check with your
doctor first!
