Below are a list of links that lead to illustrated PDF, downloadable pages that will give you step by step instructions on how to use your starter kit and how to mix our products as needed with the PPI drugs in OTC or RX form, that you intend on using with our TummyCare Max®. You can always find them here online or print them out and bring them with you or save to your device.

It is very important that you choose the exact type of PPI as well as the milligram (mg) and form of product (caps, tabs, solutab) because the mixing instructions vary depending on the each specific type, brand of PPI, the form in which it comes in and the amount of milligrams.

Finding your correct mixing instructions:

Step 1: Find the PPI you've decided to use, such as Prilosec®, Prevacid® Zegerid®, omeprazole, etcetera. Match the PPI medication that you plan to use to the directions listed.

Step 2: Check to see you've chosen the correct amount of milligrams (mg), that applies to your PPI. For instance; is it 10mg, a 15mg or a 20mg?

Step 3: Make sure the form in which your PPI comes in matches the instructions that you are choosing. Such as capsules, tablets, solu-tabs, etcetera.

Step 4: This is the tricky part. Click on the link! ;-)

Step 5: If you need a coffee grinder (which you will need for any of the instructions below) you can purchase them directly from the site here.

TummyCare Max® Mixing Instructions:

THE REASON THERE ARE HALF PACKET MIXING INSTRUCTIONS FOR PREVACID: There is some question about whether lansoprazole (Prevacid®) is stable when made into a sodium bicarbonate suspension. A study has shown that it is not stable. Lansoprazole in TummyCare Max® was found to be stable for 30 days. Some parents have asked as to whether lansoprazole is stable in TummyCare Max®. Again, we have had the lansoprazole in TummyCare Max® evaluated and it was stable for 30 days. Some parents may wish to make a smaller amount of TummyCare Max® with lansoprazole - therefore we have instructions for 1/2 packet of TummyCare Max®.

If for any reason you change your proton pump inhibitor, the form it comes in or the milligram dose, it is very important that you return to this page and get new instructions.

Note: The doses recommended in the mixing instructions and on the PPI dosing chart are not recommended by any proton pump inhibitor manufacturer or distribution company. These recommendations are representative of typical dosing used at Marci-kids and the research done by Dr. Jeffrey Phillips and Dr. Marcella Bothwell and have been proven to be effective in most cases.
