Q.

Thanks Doc

Thanks for your reply Doc regarding post number 1084. Could u pls give me names of medicines to stop the actual reflux so that I can contact my Paed again and ask him for a prescription. Why do u think my Paed just gave me Losec and has never mentioned anything about meds to stop the actual reflux??

Losec is the usual treatment for reflux in infants. It is only where the reflux continues to trouble the child that additional treatment is needed. The usual additional treatment to reduce refluxing is Motilium.
