Our almost 4 week old has been prescribed ranitidine at 3 x .5mg per day, on those 3 feeds it works like a miracle, no reflux symptoms at all, but the rest of the time is still horrible, poor little mite gets in a right state. We've tried halving the dose but doubling the frequency, this has mixed results but generally helps a bit. For those that have used it, how much we're you allowed to give? My doctor says this is the maximum but she's still very young and I wonder if she's being extra cautious as she hasn't the experience. I would like to ask for a second opinion but thought I'd ask here first.
