Hello all!! I’m a first poster but NOT new to MSPI and reflux!! My LO is almost 4 months and is currently on Compunded Prilosec. I already get it refilled every 2 weeks and her ped says that she’s up to the max dosage for her weight (which I DON’T believe!!). She’s fine in the morning, but by the evening she’s very fussy and having lots of reflux symptoms. She’s also on Elecare.
I’ve had her on Mylanta before, but am thinking about putting her on it again. The reason I stopped was because she seemed to get jittery/have insomnia a while after a dose.
Does this sound like a legit side effect of Mylanta? Has anybody else had that side effect or other side effects? I need something to help her out at night until her next dr apt (in which I’m going to beg to switch her to solutabs!!).
And is there dosage info somewhere?? She’s about 15 pounds or so. Thanks!FloridaSunshine2013-07-20 17:04:42
mylanta cherry supreme: jittery? never ever heard of this…might be a reaction to something in it, like flavoring/coloring…not sure…
sometimes babies react to prevacid solutabs & the moms say it’s the latctose in it…this is rare for babies (reacting to lactose), for lactose is milk sugar, not milk protein, and breastmilk is chock full of it. in these cases, it’s thought that it’s the aspertame in the solutab.
mylanta doesn’t have aspertame, I’m just using an example
