Marci-kids
I contacted Marci-Kids (David) via email and left voicemail also on Tuesday (three days ago). I left another voicemail yesterday but have still gotten no response. For those of you who have contacted them in the past, does it usually take them a few days to respond to requests? In GERDland a few days of an unhappy baby can be a long time!

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
I have always had really good luck hearing back from David. Perhaps he is on vacation? It has been a miserable winter in the midwest. Maybe he flew to warmer land.

We JUST started the medication routine with Marci-Kids last week! David was soooo quick to return my emails. Not great about the phone. I put "WANT TO START CARACREAM" as my subject line. He emailed back within 3 hours, faxed info to my doctors and got us up and going very quickly. My GI is against us going this route....a long story there. But my pediatrician is very excited and helpful here. We received the box of stuff about a week and a half ago, but I was trying to finish up our Nexium we just refilled. But, Stanton aspirated again (our 4th time since being on Nexium since end of Nov) and I'd had it. So - we switched. It's only been a week, but Stanton is sleeping for 8 solid hours before waking. This has NEVER happened. I'm hesitantly hopeful! Ginger

I JUST called David and he answered on the 2nd ring. I had no luck with emails either. He emailed me the Patient Information sheet you need to fill out while we were on the phone and I sent it right back. He couldn't promise when he'd get my sample out, due to all of the snow they are getting there. But hopefully SOON! Ginger - what medicine/dosage are you using now with the Caracream? Did you stop the Nexium?

Yes, we stopped the Nexium and Axid. I was hoping to finish out our refill, but My son started that combo in early November and has had pnuemomia 4 times since from aspirating! I just knew it wasn't working for us. The instructions from Marci-kids were very specific. There are two bottles and after carefully mixing everything together, we have a months worth. I put 2 mls from each bottle together and give it three times per day. The major change I've seen is in sleep. My LO is sleeping ALL night. He's never slept all night ever. We are very hopeful!
