Zegerid - Wait time?
I'm thinking of asking my pedi GI to change my son's prescription to the Zegerid powder packets. Like Prevacid, is there a "wait time" between when you administer the Zegerid and when I can feed by son (i.e. Zegerid 30 mins/1 hour prior to feeding)? Thank you!

Jessica, Mommy to Jedd, severe reflux, severe food and oral aversions, Finally G tube free!!! VSD repair 4-24-07 (open heart surgery), hypospadias, repaired 3 times and Ear tubes Visit Jedd at his CB site:
All PPIs should have the 30 mins wait time. We even did it with Jedd's H2blocker even though we were told we didn't have to.

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
The wait time is not necessary with Zegerid due to the sodium bicarbonate in it. Makes things much easier.
Check with your
doctor first!
