We took Scott to his pediatric GI appt at Shands this past Monday. He agreed to increase his Prevacid dose to 7.5 mg twice a day instead of once. I had already been giving it to him twice a day for about a week without his regular Dr knowing it. I did enough research to know that other babies are taking a higher dose and the GI specialist said that babies metabolize the drug faster than adults so sometimes they need it more frequently. Scott has been doing better since we increased it. He still cries when he sees the bottle sometimes. I guess he still associates it with pain but he drinks it down fine once he starts.

So I finally got to post some good news about my baby! He's still pretty fussy sometimes but it has gotten a lot better.

That's wonderful that Scott is feeling better! I too had upped my Prevacid dose, I just couldn't see giving him the same dose that they prescribed when he weighed half of what he does now.
