Back to square 1 with omeprazole, please help

Hi everyone, my son has been on omeprazole suspension for 15 days. The first 11 were brill and he was a different baby. The last few days have been hell. Screaming and refusing to go on his back. Called the pharmacist who swear blind that it lasts for 30 days. Anyone else had this as I really think that the effect wears off after a few days. Any thoughts?

"Fingers crossed the Neocate helps your LO.  If not then I'm sure any med the paed will prescribe will be for the best and will help.  My LO settled down a lot once on Neocate but is also on some meds too now.  Good luck. x "
