Zantac is a medication that should be effective within 10 minutes of giving it. If there is no improvement, and the dose was based correctly on her current weight, you can call the doctor the next day and let them know it's not working. Also, reflux generally has a cause. The crib wedge is very important. Sometimes milk allergy/intolerance is a cause. Sometimes it's a reaction to what you are eating if you're breastfeeding.

My daughter was on zantac and it didn't do much once she was placed on prevacid we saw an amazing difference.

I have never used the liquid for babies, but I am on the pill form now for mine. I have been on it for almost a week and I can't say I am seeing a huge change, but I never knew I had it. I'd give it probably another week for the baby.

my son suffered from reflux and my daughter had colic. I found that raising the head of the matress a bit helped. If you think about it when you drink and then lie down flat your stomach contents start to come back a bit but settle better when you are sat up. Put a pillow or something under the matress of the crib at the head. Anything tof help the kids is worth a try

I had to use that for both of my girls. I will take a minute to work. How long has she been on it?
