    Default Medication for Reflux

    All the other flavours have acid in them which is counter active to what you are trying to do.
    Have a sniff of the bottle...you will be able to guess.
    But don't try it...BIG MISTAKE! Gross after taste

    Also I'd recommend trying the tablets and administering it after being dissolved in water as it is so much more effective and cheaper than the suspension.

    Agreed. Tablets are easy to use and I found them much more effective than the suspension which for me was virtually useless after just a couple of weeks.

    My little one was on nexium for ages, he had no ill side effects, his reflux was so severe that he vomited every day of his life and when he had a scope at 18 months they found ulcers in is osophegus.he was in agony. If you can prevent that with medication, then do it. It is not worth seeing them in so much pain.

    Sorry to go off topic OP, Beebs how long was it before your DS was diagnosed and put on meds? I've heard of this happening before. It's such a shame reflux and silent reflux goes I diagnosed these days. We are always told they are just doing what babies do or they will grow out of it.

    OP my DD was on Nexium and whilst losec didn't work for her, Nexium worked brilliantly.

    I hope the Nexium works well for your bub!

    DS was on Nexium granules for 16 months and it worked brilliantly for him, completely different baby when he started at 10 weeks. Hope it works for your little one!!

    At about 6 weeks they put him on losec, and that didn't work, he was on it for ages. He was put on the nexium after they found the ulcers and it worked ok, but not fully. He really had to grow out of it I think, although I would hate to think what would have happened without the nexium!
