: Could anyone recomend an over the counter remedy for acid reflux? Thanks Emily

REPLY: The safest and most beneficial remedy , especially for kids with ASD, is good ol baking soda in water, 1 tsp. per full 8oz. glass...BUT..dont drink all at once. Get a good gulp or two down, then sip the rest at intervals of an hour, if needed. Or just make he smallest amount, say 1/4 teaspoon dissolved in 2 oz. of water (about 1/4 cup). It is the same as Alka Seltzer GOLD sold over the counter. The other OTC items haveingredients which may harm an ASD kd. One Dr. tried an ingredient found in Pepcid AC and many people resorted to giving Pepcid to their kids in hopes of achieving a curative affect but she used one ingredient only and in small pescription amounts. She did her study based on info that some schizophrenics often had a little 'clearing of the brain' when given Pepcid for acid reflux. That Dr. has a web site but I don't recall her name right off hand. If requested, I'll look it up and post it. Grandma Peg
