Q.

Nexiam

Hi there, i need some advice please. I have to give my 3 month old baby nexiam for his reflux &  heartburn. But i am struggling to give it to him - he keeps spitting it out, i can not mix it with his milk as it clogs up the teat. Any other suggestions for ways of giving it to him?

Ask your doctor to change the prescription to Losec Mups which dissolves easily.

hi there, i also give my baby nexiam. i put the tablet in a teaspoon and add just a couple of drops of water. the tablet dissolves and i give the content with the spoon. the rest i just put in his mouth with my finger. i have done this with both of my babies.
