    Default Losec suspension causing pain

    Anyone use the losec suspension and find their little one has pain after having it.

    My dd is 5 weeks and has been on 1 ml twice a day. I give at 7am and 7pm every day for 3 days. I have found since she started that after the dose she gets really I settled and seems to be in pain. Like wind or tummy pain.

    Has anyone else noticed this or could it be a coincidence? Did anything work to relive the pain? Does it go away once they are used to the medicine?

    Might be worth speaking to a gp and trying another med such as Zantac?

    Losec took about 3 days to work for us but it never caused pain it was a god send!

    We tried Zantac and it didn't work for her unfortunately. Thanks for replying - I was hoping it may have been common.

    When did you give losec before or after a feed?

    We gave it before a Feed

    There is zonton or something like that as another alternative.

    Maybe try another flavour of losec??

    Not sure?

    Ds wasn't so much in pain I don't think but he seemed more unsettled and spewy when I gave the suspension with the flavouring. Dh then made it without the flavouring and ds took it fine and seemed to make a difference.

    Since then I've just always had him make it without the flavouring.

    Maybe give that a go as I have heard a few people with the same thing.

    Also if you have only been giving the losec for three days it can take longer to have a proper effect. I think it took about a week for us to notice much improvement.

    We continued with the liquid mylanta for the first week when he seemed bad.

    Yeah I understand the losec wouldn't be in effect as yet I just noticed she seemed to get tummy pains after.

    Will go for a few more days and see if that is the pattern.

    Thanks for the advice :-)

    I've worked it out. She is much harder to burp now. I know that doesn't make sense but before I used to sit her up and almost immediately a good hearty burp would come up. Sometimes I would have to wait a minute for a second one but that was it. I thought it was the infacol.

    However am still giving the infacol and its taking 5-10 minutes of dd writhing in pain to get one up now and it's only half as good as the ones before I started giving losec.

    Could the losec be trapping the burp? Or is the fact her tummy is not as acidic meaning she doesn't have as goodbye is anymore?

    This is just so hard....

    DS was on the tablets crushed and that worked well but I tried the suspension as I thought it might be easier to administer. It prob took a couple of days, but he was a lot worse on that. We switched back to the tablets and he was much more comfortable.

    Hope you find something that works for you soon. In all, it took us about 2 months to get the dose right.
