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 use the caracream and prevacid from Marci-Kids who invented Zegrid. The caracream and prevacid mix is the same thing as Zegrid only in a liquid form. That stuff saved Ryan from a feeding tube and me from the funny farm. Some day that group is going to receive a big fat donation from me. But back to Zegrid... I was thinking about calling the company to see if the capsules can be opened up and poured on applesauce or juice like the prevacid capsules. The lable says No, but....

The general consensious is that Zegrid is the best PPI ever put out on the market. The sodium bicarbonate buffer makes all the difference. I was just talking to Ryan's ENT about it on Tuesday. He switched to it himself and can't believe the difference. Lets start poking around to see what we can find out.

Check with your
doctor first!
