In Reply to: reflux or spitting up in kids with Down Syndrome posted by Lori on March 21, 2000 at 17:02:40:

I have a 21 month old daughter (Daniella) with DS. She starting growing out of the really bad reflux days at about 18 months.
Daniella was diagnosed with gastroesophageal (sp?) reflux. She was seeing a GI doc that had her on Reglan and Zantac. We weren't happy with the progress on those meds. Switched her to another doc that put her on Propulsid, Pepcid and Carafate. Saw dramatic improvements on these three meds. Hope this helps. Hang in there. I know reflux really stinks.

: I have a 23 month old son with Down syndrome. He is healthy and doing well overall. He has been taking nutrivene suplements(no enzyme) since birth. He has repeated episodes where he spits up or vomits, requiring that his clothes be changed sometimes up to 10 times per day. I took him to a pediatric gastro. dr who ran a series of GI test that showed nothing significant. He will have some days where he does not vomit at all, and others when he never stops. Has anyone else ever experienced anything like this? Thanks
