Discussions that mention prilosec

Children's Health board


My seven year old son has had stomach problems since the age of 3. When he was 4 the doctors found he has an ulcer. We have been to 3 pedicatric GI's and no one has answers for this. He does not have Hpylori or any other obvious reason for this. He has been on several meds. Currently taking prilosec 2xday, carafate and gastrochrom. He does well on the meds but the one time the ulcer did heal, they cut back the meds and the ulcer came back. He has had 7 endoscopys and 4 CTscans.
If anyone has or knows anyone with this problem with a small child please give us some input. We are becoming very frustrated. Thank you for any insight or information.
