I was given generic medicine of levsin aka gas drops for my 7 week old baby and notice that it has a warning label saying may cause dizziness I'm guess bc it has 5% alcohol in it... So my question has anyone else use this for their baby? And did it cause any problems with the baby?

Did the doctor give you these drops or did you get them at a pharmacy? If you did not get them from the doctor,i wouldnt use them.

I just want to know for sure, is it like what we call Gripe Water? For gas and colic?
You should really get the alcohol free one because no amount of alcohol is safe for children, especially babies.


Also forgot to mention always look for an age limit on the back of bottles too because you said your baby is only 7 weeks old. (I can't remember what age they can use that stuff).
But I would reaaalllllyyyyy not give your baby something with alcohol.
