VigilantMom - Powder Packs question
I don't know how it happened, but I ran out of Buffer Babies without realizing it. I'm freaking out b/c Kylie is almost out of her Prevacid and as you know, I won't be able to get any more Buffer Babies for about a week since Marci-Kids doesn't take credit card orders over the phone.

With daycare/work schedules there is no way we'll be able to administer the PPI correctly without the Buffer Babies. I know I could empty the beads from a capsule onto a spoonful of food but with our schedules the timing requirements isn't possible, i.e. administer on an empty stomach/1 hr. before a meal.

I thought a solution until I can get more BB would be to have her dr. write a script for the Zegerid powder packs. I thought those could be given any time, without regard to mealtimes/empty stomach. But then I looked them up online and see that the powder has the same requirements as the regular PPI: http://www.drugs.com/cdi/zegerid-powder-packets.html

Was I just remembering wrong?

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
I think you would be totally fine with the Zegrid powder packets with out worrying about meal times. I know the info pack says to time it but I dont know of a single person that has. It has the sodium bicarbonate in it so that will neutralize any acid in the stomach. Go for it! I have a couple of packets of caracream left over from Ryan but it is to mix with Zegerid OTC. I can send that to you but I doubt it will get to you any faster than Marci-kids. Let me know though.

Hey, thanks! I actually called Marci-Kids yesterday and David answered. He recognized me from past orders and immediately offered to overnight me the BB w/o having received the check yet. Amazing! I sent him the check yesterday and the BB should be on my doorstep when we get home. The pedi did call in the powder packs though too...I may pick them up just to have them on hand. Thanks again.

Remi's mom: Dr. Phillips is the head pharmacist at Reflux Solutions Lab. Here is his email address: PhillipsJO@health.missouri.edu

They are having some funding issues I think and so they are currently not selling their products. Anyway, you can send him an email and he does respond. Let us know if you find out anything new from him.

Check with your
doctor first!
