Motilium

good day doctor, my son started sleeping poorly after cutting 2 teeth and nothing seemed to help, I started giving him motilium before bed and naps, and he now sleeps 12 hours straight again, any idea why???

Motilium does not usually have any sedative effect so the most likely explanation is that your little son has acid reflux which caused his restlessness in the first place.Motilium has the effect of stopping reflux of food and stomach contents back up from the stomach to the lower part of the oesophagus [foodpipe]
