PPI Contraindications. Important information of what NOT to do when giving any PPI medication to your infant with acid reflux.
Proton pump inhibitors are very safe and there is evidence that shows that there are little to no side affects. But like any medication, they are only safe and/or effective if you use them properly.
We want your baby to get relief from infant acid reflux and keep them healthy and happy so please read the below information to make sure these medications are being used properly.
You MUST TIME any dose of a PPI around feeding by 1 hour either before or after food. The only exception to timing around food is if you are using a immediate release formulation such as TC Max. Then you can dose the PPI before, after or directly with food.
There are certain foods that you should try to avoid, at least for the first two hours of initial daily dosing.
We realize that you are aware of most of the food items that inflame your baby's acid reflux and we are well aware that you would not give your child any food products that they are allergic to.
However, you may not be aware that the above food items could cause more severe acid reflux even after giving them a proton pump inhibitor. It's always better to have more information rather then less when it comes to PPI Contraindications.
Here we list any drugs or chemical products that you should not being giving while treating your baby's GERD with a proton pump inhibitor.
