Q.

Reflux

Morning

My 5 month old battles with Reflux and is on 5mg Losec Mups daily. Her reflux gets quite bad and she cries from the pain. The doctor suggested Motillium. What is this and how safe is it?
My daughter weighs 7.44kg

Motilium is an anti-reflux medicine which has been used for many years to treat babies with reflux. Your baby should do well on the Losec together with Motilium.

Hi there,

I am not a doctor and can not give advice on the meds for reflux.

what worked for me (both my children had reflux)

10mg Losec
1ml Gaviscon (Aniseed flavour) before a feed.
NO Rooibos tea - Only given Twinnings PURE chamomile tea
NO Fruit Juice
Thickening the milk with Nestargel / use of AR milk

AND TLC for the mom is a must!
