it sounds the same? sounds like the 1hr before meals is the ‘give on an empty stomach’ and that the allowing the 30 minutes is the ‘feed after 30 minutes’March 30, 2011 at 2:18 pm #68081AnonymousInactive
A GI Specialist put dd on Prevacid yesterday for acid reflux but I
had to have it filled at a pharmacy that mixes compounds. I have read on
several websites (and the dr. said that the solution usually has a
shelf life of 2 to 4 weeks) that it’s shelf life is determined by the
suspension agent and the flavoring added. The pharmacy insists that they
broke up tabs and mixed it with water with no flavoring added and that
it would be good until atleast August. Mind you, the pharmacist also
called a coworker “an idiot” so my opinion of his professionalism is in
question. I just want a second opinion about how the drug is typically
compounded and if what our pharmacist is saying is possible.Thanks!March 31, 2011 at 7:48 am #68087
skip fighting w/ the phamacist and ‘do it yourself’meaning to to http://www.refluxsolutions.com and buy their product to make your own solution. I DO NOT WORK FOR THEM. lol. but this is what I did and I have learned to think this is one of the only ways to make sure baby is being dosed properly. you alsoh have to look at the DOSE itself.see you on another forum (not another board! just another topic here at THIS forum)! this one is ‘old’ and stickied/bookmarked for reference purposesNovember 9, 2011 at 9:16 am #69338AnonymousInactive
My 6 week old is on 10 mg of nexium powder packets. I am having the hardest time making her wait 30 minutes before eating. It seems like the only time her stomach is empty is right when she wakes up. She still eats every 2 hours, so timing is hard. I try to walk her and sooth her before giving in and feeding her, but she gets so worked up, 30 minutes feels like forever. Any tips? I’ve tried waking her in the middle of her sleep, like 4 am, and then she sometimes goes back to sleep, but it doesn’t always work out . Do I just need to let her cry for that 30 minutes sometimes??April 4, 2015 at 4:46 am #135559AnonymousInactive

My daughter is taking Omeprazole that is compounded from a compounding pharmacy. the pharmacist said that the meds shelf life is 60 days but they only give a 30 day supply. Is this true? What else should I ask to ensure proper dosing? She has improved but very difficult to feed and still seems in pAin.July 14, 2015 at 10:18 pm #135700
