How long would you leave the meds to work? How long would you leave it before returning to the dr's and declaring the drugs as not working.
C started ranitidine yesterday and for 24 hours waas happy larry however this afternoon and this evening he has been screaming asymptoms have returned. Not to the extent that they were but they are by no means gone either.

The Gp told me a week (for gaviscon). I'm going back tomorrow as it's basically done diddly squat! Hope it kicks in soon for O or you can find something else.

I'm remembering it being 2 weeks we were advised, but it was many years ago now so I could be wrong. In fact, why on earth did I bother replying you are probably wondering.

Jb- mine isn't a proper guideline just my impatience!

I was told one week. But I actually went back next day with the gaviscon as she reacted so badly. Now she's on 3 weekly review.
It does take a few up and down days to see any definite change. If it takes you 2 weeks to get an appointment id book one now to be safe.

Wouldn't gaviscon have an immediate effect? Or would it need to build up?
