Mine was started on Losec at 4 weeks, Zantac added at 6 weeks, laxative at 10 weeks and Neocate at 3 1/2 months.
Worth knowing though is that usually stomach acid doesn't kick in til 4 to 6 weeks so it may be cows milk protein intolerance at play rather than acid burn. If you're BFing, cut out cows millk (strictly) and see if it helps.
If you say she has colic, what do you mean? Really unsettled? Is she windy? Or seems to be windy but can't pass it? Have you noticed blood or mucous in the poo?
Keep harrassing your doc!!! How is bubs doing now?

My DD was put on Zantac at 3 weeks old and it did nothing, infact I think she was worse. Then they put her on Losec-sorry can't remember the dose but I hated giving her meds when she was so little. I then went to a Chiropractor out of desparation and that helped a lot. used infants friend a lot too (liquid gold that stuff!). finally got her to a paed at 9 weeks and she diagnosed her as lactose intolerant. put her on soy based formula and never looked back. within 3 days she was a different bub.
Paed told me that lots of bubs that have bad refulx, wind, colic are lactose intolerant but GPs and MCHN don't know the signs. I hope you are ok, I remember how hard it was and how loud they scream. It feels never ending sometimes, hope your bub gets better soon

My ds started mylanta, then zantac at 4 weeks of age. We were going crazy with his constant screams and lack of sleep for all of us. The Paed recommended a 2 day trial of mylanta and it worked so well that he started Zantac (the mylanta was for every now & again after that - not that often as per the Paed). I can't remember the doses, but I do remember it was dependent on his weight and at 7 - 8 weeks we had to increase the dose.
Infants Friend/etc/etc all made my ds 10x's worse.
Hope things improve soon!
