Dear Doc

Thank you in advance for your advice. My 18 months old son was diagnosed with reflux. I give him Nexium at 06:30 in the morning and Motilium at 07:00 ( I give him motilium 3x a day) and then at 07:30 he eats his breakfast. Is this the right process? I dont see any change with his refluxing. He has been on this medicines for 2 weeks now.

Thanks again

It is odd that your baby is still refluxing while on Motilium treatment.His treatment schedule is correct. It is possible that the motilium dose is too low. Even if he is still refluxing the Nexium will reduce his stomach acid and prevent any discomfort caused by reflux of acid stomach back up into the lower part of your baby's oesophagus. It is important to let your paediatrician know that your baby is still refluxing.

Hi Salome, sorry to respond to your post but maybe I can also help.

My son of 27 months also had reflux since birth, he was also on various medicines for the reflux. Losec, Nexium, Motilium etc. We was very desperate and the ped recommended the reflux operation but we didn''t want to go that road.
I have always knowed about Sister Lillians product but never used it till December I''ve bought the Sister Lillians Nausicare out of desperation, and you know what it did the trick it helped cure the reflux. He is no longer on the chronic medication only the sister lillian 3x per day, I don''t know maybe you can also try it. It is a natural product and you can buy it from any Dischem.

He does not reflux anymore, and I''m very very glad. He also picked up 2kg this last 2-3 months.
