Reflux problems...Axid prescribed

My ped thinks my 5 week old has reflux...she has all the classic signs. She prescribed 1.4 ml of Axid twice a day. We have tried it and it doesn't seem to be helping. Has anyone else used this med for reflux? If so, how old was your baby, and what was the dosage? Did it work for you? TIA!

My son had really bad reflux from birth to about 6 months. He wasn't on Axid, but he was a similar medication. We really found little benefit from the prescription. We were also told to try thickening his feeds and that seemed to be more effective.

Re: Reflux problems...Axid prescribed

Hi there- We used axid from 8 weeks on, and my DD is still on it at almost 11 months. We found that it worked the best for us. At one point we also had her on reglan, which didn't seem to work at all. We also tried Prevacid, which works well for some but not for us. Axid provided the most definite change, and she has had the least symptoms with it. It did seem to take a week or so to work. Also, I nursed her in a semi-upright position and kept her upright after eating for as long as possible. Good luck!

It's going to take a few weeks for you to really notice a difference.

My youngest was given zantac for her reflux, alone it didn't do alot but with Gripe Water it helped. Gripe Water on it's own didn't do alot either, it had to be the combination.

Cutting out dairy & hidden dairy can help with reflux.
