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
Hey Debbie, I think it was you that posted that Zyrtec makes reflux worse.. or what I dreaming that? Ryan was doing so well, and I was just getting ready to pull him off PPIs completely. Then allergy season hit here in full force. He has been back on Zyrtec for 2 weeks now and reflux is back in full force. Its like we turned the clock back a year. CRAZY. Trying to figure out if it is the Zyrtec or just the allergies causing a bunch extra mucos and crap in his stomach. Seriously considering getting his adenoids out.

We're on Zyrtec and it hasn't done anything to make Stephen's reflux worse. In fact he's doing SO much better now that he's not constantly congested from reflux AND allergies. If it wasn't for Zyrtec, he'd be miserable. :-/
