Customer Question

I have a 4 wk old baby. He has been on zantac for a wk and a half. It worked awesome at first. For the last 2 days every time I give him a dose of zantac then feed him, when I go to burp him he projectile vomits terrible. He has never vomited. He is a silent refluxer. He is on 0.7ml 3 times a day and he weighs 10 lbs. should I stop the zantac?

Hi, Sorry about this symptom. Please reduce dose to 0.4 ml twice and see. Also use 2-3 ml Maalox syrup 3-4 times with feeds if the vomit smelled sour.
