    Thanks for your help ladies. Missy Mack, I do go to hospital hill to get the losec compounded. I tried the dissolvong the tablet way for 4 weeks andd it is so bloody hard to get him to swallow it. Im finding the syrup much easier then the tablet (still a struggle at times though).
    I saw a new pead today and he agreed that it is a lot of meds but said it will be ok so long as we dont exceed the dose. '
    He is testing his stool for red and white blood cells and has also given us a new formula to trial if things havnt improved by next week.

    Default HELP with Medications - how to give them...

    I hope things have improved for you.

    My DD was diagnosed with reflux at 4 weeks (she is now 6 weeks). We put her on the Novalac reflux at 4 weeks and she is now on Losec. We get outr Losec from hospital hill and it is put in a liquid which we squirt into her mouth.

    So far we haven't seen an improvement

    If there's no improvement, it could be because the liquid suspension isn't as effective as the dissolved tablets. Maybe try that instead if you still don't see any improvement after another week.

    I feel for you! It is so hard to watch your little baby suffer with reflux.
    My girl also had reflux. She was on medication untill she was four months but we were told to take her off the medication and start feeding her solids instead.

    She also hated the medication, it always took the two of us to administer!
    The medication helped with the volume she was bringing up (hers was not silent) but did not decrease frequency.

    I wish you all the best with it! All I can say is that it will get better! I am unsure how much you know about other ways of helping with the reflux but feel free to contact me if you need any more advise!
