Mom to Matthew, 01/16/08, GERD baby, has been on Zantac since 2 mos. Aidan, his twin brother, no GERD. Max-ed out on Zantac at 1ml-3 times/day, and switched to Prevacid 15mg split tab 08/20/08. Switched again to 20mg Prilosec 09/18/08 due to Prevacid's restlessness/headache side effects. Reflux was out of control again and had to switch to 10mg Nexium 02/11/09. Good result so far.
|I usually wait 1hr after lunch and 2-3 hrs after dinner to put my son down for nap/bed. Croup was aggravating my son's reflux too and he was throwing up a lot more. Thanks God, the croup coughing last about 3 nights and then got better. It's best to check with the pharmacist or doctor but from what I remember Mylanta needs to be given at least 2 hrs before or after another PPI dosage like Prilosec.|
