Prevacid &zantac still not working?
Hello everyone! My dd was diagnosed with silent reflux at 2 weeks. We started prevacid compression 1ml 2x a day then zantac one week later .5ml 2x daily because she was still having painful burps, etc. We are also on Alimentum. 2 weeks passed with little change (good days and bad) bad days being screaming crying for 4-5 hours straight! Only sleeping in our arms or not sleeping at all. It is so stressful! GI specialist increased prevacid to 3.5ml divided daily and stay on zantac. It's been 1 week with the increase and there had been little change. She then advised us to thicken bottles (using oatmeal to avoid constipation), that did seem to help some. She seems to be able tohave more time awake without crying which was unheard of

She is still having pain when burping and very unsettled after feedings. Should I still wait to have the increase kick in?
