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.
That's great, I have that station programmed in! :)

Ryan was born May 20th 2008. 9 lbs 2 oz. Ryan’s magic bullet was 30mg of Prevacid capsules mixed with Caracream from Marci-kids (I am forever indebted to the team at Marci-kids), Claratin for the mucos, and Mirlax for the constipation. Within 2 months of this combo he jumped from the 6% to the 50% for weight and continues to climb. Be strong, listen to your instincts. Read his story for more specifics that just might help you too - Karen
Cool! Do you want our questions in advance so you can be prepared with an amazing answer? : )

Two specific topics
I'm told they will ask me for the parents' reactions to two new studies. 1) the one about PPIs causing rebound acid and 2) the one about moms who take antacids during pregnancy having more kids with reflux. I need to get both and study them. Tell me your reactions!! I need your perpectives

Some topic ideas for you. 1. The importance of timing the administration of the PPIs. ie the empty stomach requirement. There are a lot of people out there that do not know that. 2. Staying on top of the dosage as they gain weight. 3 Why teething causes havic on reflux. 4. Why morning are always the worst. 5. What you can do to try to prevent fluid or food aversions. I hope that gives you some ideas.

Thanks a bunch! Very good points. I hope I can work them into the half hour show. I also want to try to get on their pediatric show.
Check with your
doctor first!
