Hi, My 7 month old has severe silent reflux, on all the usual Gaviscon, Ranitidine, Domperidone, nutramigen formula and Omeprazole. The problem I have is with the Omeprazole we have been given Losec Mups which is supposed to dissolve and we have had such a nightmare trying to give it to her that I have taken her off it. Basically the syringe got blocked continually, she would scream and fight so much that at least half of it would be spat out and it was seriously stressfull.
After a couple of good weeks she has gone backwards and is a lot worse so think I should put her back on the Omeprazole, question is, Can I put the Losec Mups with her food to give it to her? Also I know that the liquid Omeprazole is supposed to be slightly less effective but can anyone advise whether that's true. I'm thinking that at least I would be able to get the medicine in to her if it was in liquid form.
Any thoughts, opinions greatly appreciated!
