anyone heard of using Eryped for reflux
Well Parker started spitting up again all the time about 2 weeks ago. so the dr put him on Eryped 3 times a day and then ups this other med from 3.5ml 2 times a day to 5.0ml 2 times a day. I just wanted to see if any of you have tried this on your little ones and did it work?

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
Hi! Erythromicin is used for motility. Sometimes if the baby's bowels aren't emptying fast enough, it will cause reflux to worsen. Drs will usually either prescribe erythromicin or reglan. Ery. is considered safer.

We tried Eryped!! Unfortunately it didn't work for us and made things worse. Reglan does work for us though but we have def. motility issues too. Lots of kiddos do real well on the erythromycin though. Jeddsmommy on here had Jedd on it for a long time. Good luck. Let us know how it is working for you.

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.
like the PP's said..there are two drugs for motility. Erythro is considered safer, but it had no effect on my son. Reglan has everyone running for the hills, but it worked WONDERS for my son for a while...when he started showing side effects, we pulled him off and that was it. His motility seems to have improved a little as he's growing up...we shall see! Anyway, give they erythro a couple weeks...you're relying on a side effect, so not all kids see it.
