Trying to open the Prevacid capsules
Hi, my dd is 7 but back on the reflux meds again. She has thrown up 3 times at night in bed in the last 4 months. We used to give her Prevacid when she was 2 and we easily just twisted the capsule apart, simple! Yesterday I bought the Prevacid 24HR over the counter capsules and I can't twist them apart. The granules flew all over the counter when I tried to gently cut off the top :/ Any suggestions? I usually just sprinkle the granules over her yogurt. Thanks! Reese's Mom :)

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
Sorry to hear your daughter is back on the meds again. Yes, when Prevacid went OTC they "taped" them closed. Its a pharmacutical requirement. It works well to cut the tip off with a manicure scissors. Cut it over a bowl.

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.
i had to use manicure scissors, too...worked great...I cut it over a cup that I was going to give them in.
Check with your
doctor first!
