Discussions that mention zantac

Children's Health board


My son is 20 months and just had a barium swallow study done. It showed significant reflux so he takes prescription Zantac and Reglan twice a day. The next step is to go in and have a PH probe study done.

There are things you can do to cut down on problems like staying away from the spicy foods, chocolate, etc. You can also elevate the bed so that she isnt lying flat at night.

Personally, I would try to get in and get the tests done ASAP. Long term acid exposure can scar the esophagus and permanently change her voice. This can lead to long term problems. You can modify diet and get on prescription meds that can control the problem.

My son's is severe enough that we are talking about a surgery called a Fundoplication. This will make it to where no acid can come back up. I wish you the best
