Results?
Dr just started Cody on Ranitidine, I'm curious how long it tyically takes before we could start seeing results? I understand, it may not work at all, but I don't know if it should help the first night, a week later, or what? Thanks!

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!
you should see results from zantac within a few days, but some won't see any until a few weeks has passed. I'm glad you know it may not work - one of the possible side effects is increased irritability (just an FYI so you know that Cody may not be getting worse on it). Most of these kids need the PPI, so good luck!

Thank you! We don't even know for sure if he has reflux, but I think he's definitely showing some signs of it. Dr said we'll just try something to see if it helps....

We saw relief after 3 days of taking zantac. The relief lasted for 4 days and then my son's pain returned. Zantac is weight sensitive so needs to be adjusted with weight changes. My son needed a PPI added to the zantac to gain any relief from his pain as the zantac alone was not enough to control things. Good luck
Check with your
doctor first!
