Switching from Solutabs to Compound
Sooo I contacted the doctor and he has agreed to let me try the compound and my friends dad is a pharmacist and they have agreed to remake the prevacid compund every 15 days... so is the compound better then the tabs?? I am hoping this works better since we seem to think he has a milk allergy. Also as of last night, Jackson ate 3 and a half ounces at 4pm... not satisfied after a half hour so I made him another 2 ounces and he ate all of that... he ate again at 9 and did the same thing... so at 3 am I made a 6 oz bottle and he ate 5.5oz again?? I dont know what has made him change all of a sudden, but he has held himself off for 5 and a half to 6 hours today and has continued the pattern... anyone ever had anything like that? He was usually continent eating smaller amounts for frequently but not now... I dont know if he is feeling better or what is going on...

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
That is great that your pharmacist agreed to make the compound every 2 weeks. Great job. As far as the compound vs the solutabs..... Some of the moms on the board with kids how have milk alergies really struggled with the solutabs. It only has trace amounts of milk but it was enough to bother their kids.

Yes, David still works at Marci-kids. He gets buried in phone calls and emails though and it is possible that he has taken a couple of days off. If you are looking to order their product you can down load the form off of their site Pick which version you want, fill out the form and mail it in with your check. It is what he will have you do anyway when you get a hold of him.

As far as the change in feeding patterns... either he is feeling better or going through a growth spurt. If both, that would be great!

I too was having a difficult time getting a hold of David so I called him at 7:30am his time (central) when he first got into work!! When I did get ahold of him it was a relief and so helpful! Keep trying!!! Keep your fingers crossed that it works for us!!!!
Check with your
doctor first!
