My little one (8 weeks old) has been on Zantac for a few days and I think it is actually making it worse. One of the side effects that is listed on the piece of paper than comes with the bottle is stomach pain and I'm 99% sure that is what he is experiencing. He is on a one week trial of it but I didn't give it to him this morning and he seems a lot happier.

Has anyone else experienced this?

I would call you doctor who prescribed it. I know with Reflux in general they get a lot of gas which causes pain. It may just be the zantac working it out, it maybe it making it worse.
Have you tried gripe water or mycilon drops around the time you give a bottle?

I wouldn't stop giving it to him I would sadly do the one week but try adding in gas drops and I will locate the link for belly massage to help him pass the gas

It can take 2-4weeks for all these type of meds to work fully. Good luck and KUP

Babies with reflux alread have stomach discomfort, but if it seems like he is acting more uncomfortable than what he was feeling before the meds, then I would call the doc. Has the med helped with his reflux at all??
