My daughter is on .5 of Zantac x3 a day, the Zantac is starting to wear off again.

Last week her pedi was suppose to change her medicine to Prevacid or Prilosec (I can't remember the exact one). We had problems getting our insurance to cover it, so our pedi was trying to work something out with our insurance... Days went by we didn't hear anything back, DH called LO's pedi Thursday and got the run around. He called again Friday, for whatever reason the office didn't get back to him.

LO is out of medicine, the pharmacy won't fill the Zantac because it's too soon. Tomorrow LO's doctor's office is open for emergencies only, we can't let LO suffer so we're taking her to the pedi. I don't care how much I have to pay out of pocket for the medicine I just want the prescription! I also hope LO gained a little more weight.

wish us luck! For those of you who's LOs were on Prevacid or Prilosec, what side effects did they have? Did the medicine work?

Wesley was on Prevacid, but it didn't really work for us. I know it does for other babies though. Sorry to hear about the insurance and pedi craziness. I think the Prevacid was pretty pricey. Let us know how it goes!

Zantac did nothing for us, so we switched to Prevacid solutabs. It is a lot pricier. The Zantac was only $10 a month whereas the Prevacid was $50 a month and that was after our insurance paid for a big chunk. The only side effect I noticed from Prevacid was that it made her poops runnier (she's EBF).
