For those of you whose LO is taking prevacid...how old were they when they started and what was the dose. My son is 7 weeks old and has been diagnosed with reflux. His doctor put him on Zantac but his feeding specialist feels prevacid is better. There is a question however of him being to young to take it...ThanksMarcella
Nicola was on Zantac at 3 weeks of age. Zantac did nothing for Nicola. The prevacid seems to be doing the trick. She has been on Prevacid for a couple weeks now... taking 7mg twice daily. She is 12 weeks old today and we go to the doctor today to find out if we will continue at that dose.... She is not even 9 lbs yet though... she is tiny!
We started Ashlyn on Zantac at 3.5 weeks old, it didn't work, so she was on Prevacid by 4.5 weeks old. It worked better, but now we're considering adding Erythromycin to her regiment, as she's been refusing feedings.
My DD was born with a TE Fistula, has severe reflux, and a hiatal hernia. She is on on Prevacid twice a day 7.5mg each dose and she just started Erythomycin .5ml 4x a day. She was taking Reglan but it didnt help. It only made her extremely irritable. She has been taking the Prevacid since she was 3 days old in the NICU.
