Re: The dr. gave my 12 yr old dd Tecta
They do give it to children, even babies, but it is the wrong thing to give as a first try. It is not meant to be used in this way. I do not have children, but as an adult who took a similar drug, I would not give it to a child as they can become dependent, and at such a young age you do not want that. Try some natural remedies. DGL licorice is helping me; some herbal teas maybe; and look at what is causing her sick feeling. Blocking acid will only lead to more serious problems further down the line. Look it up before giving it to her. If she has a serious medical condition that requires it then obviously it has its place, but is given out willy-nilly.
