Newbie, questions, desperate, does anyone have any BB/CC in Austin area?
Hi everyone, I've been lurking here on and off, starting in February when we suspected my son (2nd child) had reflux. Ped started him on solutabs 7.5 mg 2x a day and there was an improvement, but he's been on CC Max w/ OTC prevacid 24 hr. 15 mg for a while and that's been great. However, I guess my latest order to reflux solutions didn't make it in time (insert colorful curse words here) -- I sent my check on Saturday and was praying that my package would arrive today, but nope. I have probably one, MAYBE two more doses of the CC left in the bottle and HOPEFULLY a miracle happens and I get a package on a Saturday...but if I don't, I guess I'll have to use the leftover Solutabs. I'm so upset because my little guys reflux is so much better (he's now almost 4 months) and about 10 days - 2 weeks ago I got a little lazy on giving his doses on time (don't flame me please) because I thought maybe he might be outgrowing it, but no, it was the meds. I'm so terrified we'll have another relapse while I'm waiting for my CC order to arrive even if I do give him Solutabs. Do y'all think that I should go from giving 5.5 mL of CC Max 3x a day back to 7.5 mg of solutabs 2x a day? Or is there a better way to dose using my backup solutabs? I really am so upset about this, part of me wants to see if any one in the Austin TX area has any BB or CC to sell me. I really thought I had enough in the bottle to last through early next week AND that the order would have arrived by now. My little guy is also cutting his two lower front teeth AND cross cutting his canines, he's not been sleeping well after being a pretty good sleeper (after we started using CC of course). He's had such a tough week, I feel so bad that the medicine isn't here... If anyone is in the Austin TX area and has any to sell, I will come to you to get it with cash in hand...LMK... Otherwise someone help with my dosing question re: Solutabs while I wait for our order... Thanks, Liz

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.

I am in Iowa so I am no help on the caracream. I would use what you have. When you run out you can use your solutabs or open the capsules and put the beads in a little applesauce. Just remember to give on an empty stomach and feed 30 min later. Look on your caracream sheet to see if the mixture you are making is a 2 to 1 ratio or 3 to 1. That will tell you the dose you need to give. If for example it is 2 to 1 then you are giving a little over 10 mg 3 times a day for a little over 30 a day. In which case you can do one solutab in the morning and one at night. Or one capsule of beads in the morning and one at night. It's going to be too hard to split it 3 ways. It is going to be ok. I have done this myself and I am sure many others have too. I try to reorder 3 weeks in advance just in case David is ever on vaca or has a lot of back orders. Let me know if the dosage I explained doesn't make sense and I will give you my phone number.

Thanks for responding, vigilant mom...thank the heavens, the package arrived today on Saturday! The FedEx guy must have thought I was insane. WHEW. I am NOT doing that again -- waiting til I mix up my last batch until I place another order. That was stressful. I appreciate your help with my questions, what I came up with is pretty close to what you told me...I ended up giving him a solutab this morning because I wanted to save that one last dose for nighttime because of the whole acid pump/nighttime thing which I still don't understand but know is true. SO glad my package came today.
