Debbie, Mom to:
Derek,10/29/02 GERD,Can't have any legumes(soy, being the worse), allergic to PN/Tree Nuts, struggled to gain weight for years, my "picky" eater,Takes Zegerid. Johnny, 12/05/99 GERD, managed by diet, allergic to cashews/pistachios.
Anyone with older child on Zegerid or Prilosec? What dosage?
My son is turning 9 this weekend and is back on his meds. We seem to be having good results with zegerid once a day. Going twice a day he was miserable, but sometimes once a day is not quite enough. ANyone else with an older refluxer and experience in this area? Thanks, Debbie

Mom to two refluxers. DS 4.5 years, on prevacid since 5 weeks. Trial wean this summer...fail. Intolerant of dairy and soy DD born Nov 2010. Currently on zegerid. Had stomach malrotation & surgery at 9 months. Avoiding dairy/soy with her while BFing.
I have a baby on zegerid so I am not of any help with the dosage. I was curious what you meant when you said twice a day he was miserable. Were you splitting the dose and it just wasn't enough? or was he having side effects when he got a higher dose? Just curious as I also have a 4.5 year old with reflux too. Is the marci kids website with dosing still down?
Check with your
doctor first!
