Have Pediatric Questions? Ask a Pediatrician.
Hello & welcome to Just Answer! If you have any questions after reading my answer, be sure to let me know.
It may take between a week to 15 days for the medication to become effective
and the maximum effect may take up to 1 month, by which time most children will respond to the same
So I would recommend that your son continue taking the same if the symptoms do not appear to be worsening,
Let me know if you have any clafications
I understand that,
Unfortunately the medications that are routinely used in infants are limited as far as GERD is concerned
and among PPIs Lansoprazole probably has the best profile
I would recommend talking to your pediatrician, and continuing the same for the present point of time, unless symptoms appear to worsen,
it is possible that the symptoms will improve over the next week
Otherwise a change of medication may be considered
Let me know if you need more inputs,
Please leave a positive feedback too,
You are most welcome :)
we have seen gratifying results for a large majority of children
So I am hopeful that your son would do well too
Do remember to leave a positive feedback too !
