My 4 month old was on zantac for over 2 months then when we saw a specialist for her milk intolerance he told us to try and wean off zantac if it didn't work to switch her to prevacid since she would likely outgrow the prevacid soon,
I tried to wean of zantac (didn't increase dose for 5 weeks then lowered dose a tad) FAIL. Poor thing. SO I filled the prevacid 1 week ago. Her reflux was acting up due to the lowering zantac. But' it's been a week and the poor thing. She isn't screamy like she is when outgrowing her zantac.
But she is throwing up tons of liquidy stomach acid smelling vomit. When out growing her zantac she would spit up really chunky thick cottage cheese looking stomach acid smelling stuff so this is different. She is sleeping nearby and I can hear it coming up and she swallowing it and wiggling about grunt over and over and over,
SO...is this normal for on prevacid? Should I switch back to Zantac, I still have some and can switch asap. She was still doing well with it...though she'd need a higher dose now. Should I wait it out longer?
It is the premixed in liquid. Kept in fridge. Was told to give once a day. I was giving right before breastfeeding because I wasn't told otherwise but then read moms saying has to be on an empty stomach so I tried that tonight. But, she eats every 2hrs on the dot so I can only give in between that!
