My pharmacist only ever made it up in 3 week batches. Very inconvenient to have to keep going back for it but at least it was fresh and kept working. He said its extremely unstable and 3 weeks was the absolute most u could stretch it to.
Hi OP, my DD was prescribed losec as a suspension initially, it started working around day 5, but by end of 2 weeks she was in pain again. the pharmacist said the suspension is sensitive to light so everytime you take it out of the fridge and its exposed to light it looses efficacy .
we than tried the llosec tablet...basically i placed the prescribed tablet dose (which was 1/4 of a 20mg tablet) into a syringe dropper (the one that come with panadol) and suck up some water in it. DO NOT SHAKE IT!! this is important as if the granules breakdown they will not work. let the syringe /dropper sit for couple of minutes and you will see the granules separate..than give it to bub, you can suck up more water to squirt out any granules that are left.
use a pill cutter to cut the tablet as its more precise.
with the tablets fter 4 days DD improved a lot and stayed well for a good 2 months after which I slowly weaned her off it.
give the tablets a go before you decide to change the medication.
