we put my daughter on zantac a little over a week ago and it helped for a couple of days and went right back to her symptoms that she had. i have been talking to another friend of mine. that happend to her baby too and then she put him on prevacid and it worked like a charm. has anybody had positive results on prevacid after trying other medications?

It's my understanding that that happens a lot with little ones on Zantac, Dr.s usually like to try it first, since it is more cost-effective. My little guy was able to do well with the Zantac until he was able to be taken off of it at about 6 months. If it is not seeming to work anymore and you aren't missing doses, you probably need to bump him over to the Prevacid. Best of luck to you!

I had my LO on zantac from about a week old then when he got to about 3 months it seemed to stop working so we changed to Prevacid. It started working better within a few days now he is 11 months and no longer takes it! Good Luck

Hi there --- With our son, who is now almost 3, he was on Zantac for quite awhile. But as he grew bigger, it was not working as well. We then tried prevacid and it worked so much better!!! He was on it for awhile but was medication free by 13/14 months? Good luck, reflux sucks!!!
