How long before prevacid starts working
My one month old just switched from Zantac to Prevacid (compounded) Wednesday. She's 6lbs 9 ounces and takes 2.5 mL twice a day. Just wondering how long before we see some changes to determine if the medicine is working. She's still very fussy, won't sleep well, has been spitting up, is slow at gaining weight, etc. I've heard it can take 1-2 weeks before the Prevacid actually starts working. Just wondering what other moms have experienced.

My observation form being around here for over five years is that you can expect 2 weeks or so...
Check with your
doctor first!
