Question How did Prevacid help your infant?

I am giving Prevacid to my son who is 5 weeks. I have read a number of post and articles so I can determine if the Prevacid is working but still haven't found an answer. For those of you who are giving Prevacid to your children - how did you know it was working? What symptoms disappeared? He has been on it for over a week but still arches, gags, coughs, grunts, and spits up. He has yet to have a problem with feeding and doesn't cry during or after a feeding. From the articles I have read the poor feeding and crying seem to be the only symptoms that went away.

Re: How did Prevacid help your infant?

Hi,

If it's going to work, you'll know. Both of my boys have had to be on meds for acid reflux. My youngest DS, currently 9 months old, is on Prevacid. We tried Zantac first, but there was no improvement. We then moved on to Prevacid, 1/2 15 mg tablet once a day. There was no improvement on that. Then we doubled his dosage to 1/2 15 mg tablet twice a day. About five days later, we had a different baby. You'll know if it's working. The difference is like night and day - seriously. If it's been five days and you haven't seen any improvement, I would guess that it's not working. It may take a dosage increase like my DS or something else all together. Good luck!
