My son has been taking Zantac for GERD and now that is past the one year mark, we are trying Prevacid. We are making the change since his symptoms seem worse with solid foods, and the Zantac just isn't helping. Those who have children who HAVE USED Prevacid - how quickly did you notice an improvement? Side effects?Answer Question

Both of my children were reflux babies. Be VERY CAREFUL with the prevacid.. Talk to your pediatrician before making the switch. working in health care there can be complications like Overdosing, My youngest takes a 1/4 tablet of prevacid 2x a day per her Md. She has reacted very well to the medication and her reflux is almost completely cleared (minus daddy rough housing with her right after she eats =) ) i am a firm believer that if the child needs the medication please by all means use it but with the proper knowledge. =) Hope this helps.
