Q.

Post 446: Reflux

Dear Doc

Hope you are ok. I have been giving my son (18 months old) Losec every morning for the past 4 weeks. It seemed to be working fine, but as of last Wednesday the reflux symptoms are back. I am so frustrated right now I dont know what to do. pls advice.

Thank you very much

Thank you.The Losec only stops the acid in your little son's stomach, not the reflux itself.He will need an additional treatment called Motilium as well to stop his actual reflux. Please ask your doctor to put him on this medicine as well.
