Medication Instruction Sheets

The information provided on Crying Over Spilt Milk is designed to support, not replace, the relationship that exists between a patient/site visitor and his/her existing physician. Please do not change your child’s medical treatment without first consulting their health professionals.

Gaviscon Infant for Bottlefed Infants | Gaviscon Infant for Breastfed Infants | Ranitidine | Omeprazole granules| Omeprazole suspension

The above are Parent Medication Instruction Sheets (in PDF format) for various reflux medications. They are designed for doctors/health professionals to give to patients along with the first script for medications, and for those who are unsure how best to give their child’s medication.

Feedback confirms that the medications have a better effect if given correctly.

Currently there is an increasing trend for doctors to prescribe Omeprazole suspension rather than the recommended granules. Here is a letter addressing this problem: Omeprazole suspension letter for health professionals.

  • http://www.cryingoverspiltmilk.co.nz/new-baby-on-the-way-taking-probiotics/ - New story from one of our Kiwi Health, Pregnancy and Parenting Forum users. Nice to have positive stories.

    Well I thought I would update you all on our baby. She was born on 24th August, the day before her due date and on my birthday. I was taking 3 x 2 caps of Probiotics per day in the last month of pregnancy which can seem excessive, but as I can’t overdose on them and I only get one chance...

  • Are there any breastfeeding Mums out there? My little girl is about to turn 7mths and has finally been diagnosed with silent reflux (alot of people dismissed me when I suggested it months ago). We have started on Gaviscon sachets nearly 48hrs ago and she is much better especially at settling in the evening. She is usually OK at night so haven't given her the powder when she wakes at night yet. Any tips on how to use at night? I have been mixing it up and syringing it into her mouth. Packet says not to make up in advance but I wondered if I could for nighttime so I don't have to make it up when she wakes. Thanks

  • A question please -my daughter has twin girls aged 3 weeks.They were premature born at 35 weeks 3 days.One of them is fine breastfed and sleep.However the other one grunts and groans,pulls her legs up and sometimes cries after each feed.She does not settle well at all.Could this be reflux or what.I know it's early days but my daughter is exhausted!!Any suggestions would be great.Thanks

  • I have a question for mothers who have tried feed thickner. Can constipation occur when using this? I have checked the karicare website but does not state any side effects.

  • I have removed the recent video to our page on how to give Losec mups that was shared by someone. These are not available in NZ.

  • Hi there, I just want to say how helpful your website is, it is jam packed full of useful info! Thank you for being here!!!!!

  • My 10 week old son is in starship due to heart condition. His omeprizol has just been doubled to try and ease his discomfort with reflux. He is now on twice daily but a nurse said she had heard it was more effective given as a single dose? What are the advantages and disadvantages of a single dose? Sometimes the doctors listen to me and sometimes they dont so id need to have my facts straight if wanting them to change it. He has his omeproxol via ng and gaviscon mixed with pepti junior

  • Keep looking at the new posts to the page by others...on the left hand side...

  • My baby is 10weeks (5weeks corrected) and can not sleep on her back at all since this has her coughing and spluttering when not just straight up projectile vomiting. It seems to be worse now she is on thickened formula (alongside omaprozole) esp at night it's like she can't actually spit up the feed anymore (or multiple hours later) as its thicker and therefore she stays choking on it. Does anyone have any nighttime tips it scares me

  • Thank you New Zealand Post.
