Q.

Zantac and Buscopan

My 9 week old baby is taking Zantac and Buscopan for reflux...been taking it for 3 weeks now. Firstly, she spits ALL of it out as it tastes SO bad. I mix the two together in her formula milk, is this OK???

Secondly...for how many weeks on end can I keep on giving her both these medicines. I give her 1.5 ml Buscopan 3 times daily and 0.8 ml Zantac twice daily....

Try and stop the Buscopan and only give the Zantac twice a day. This can be added to her formula if needed.
