I know a lot of people on here have said zantac didn't really work for their baby and then they tried either prevacid or prilosec and it helped a TON. I know that was our personal experience anyway. You have to give the prevacid a full week before judging it, which can be hard to wait that long. If your baby throws up either while taking it or within half an hour, we were told to regive the entire dosage. Otherwise they don't get the meds. We didn't know this at first and since she was barfing all the time she never really got the full dosage and thus didn't get better. So it was hard as we really didn't want her to throw up as she was failure to thrive and every calorie really mattered, but we made it a point to make sure the meds got in her and stayed in her no matter what for a week and then she really did stop vomiting finally. It was like a miracle to us. So I hope the prevacid will help you too and you won't even have to think about surgery. I don't have any experience with that - we didn't have to go there and I hope you won't have to either. Let us know how the prevacid goes. Are you doing the solutabs? Our DD didn't do well with them - they made her gag - so we switched to compounded (liquid) prilsec - same class of drugs - but worked better for us as it was a liquid.
Anyway, good luck and let us know how it goes...

We were on Zantac, then Axid and just last week started Prevacid, so far so good. I hope it works for you guys too! To me it is much easier to give the Prevacid than the Axid or Zantac the taste is much better!
My son is on both Zantac and Reglan. I see alittle bit of a difference, but my son was born with a cleft palate and i was told that we should expect spitting up. He hates the tates of the Zantac...it was really hard to get him to take it but we got the hang of it. I also heard it doesnt work...
