Q.

Losec and Reflux

My daughter has reflux and was prescribed Losec from the age of 6 weeks - she is now four months old and still takes it. I was just wondering whether it was safe to take for an extended period of time?

Losec is very safe and in many cases has to be used for a prolonged period until the reflux problem disappears.
