Following measures are recommended:

1) Because symptoms of milk protein allergy can overlap those of GERD in infants, a 2-week trial of hypoallergenic formula can be recommended in this age group.

2) Apart from baby Mylanta, medications like omeprazole and lansoprazole are also needed.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

He is on nutramigan. Has been since 2 weeks old. Hes been on zantac, axid, and protonix. Protonix is the only med that works but now his dr doesnt know what dosage to give him.
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 8 months ago

Usually Protonix is avoided for kids less than 5 years old..

So there are no guiding doses in medical literature.

Ok what about the mylanta? Never heard of that... what would his dosage be? Amd what would his dosage be for Axid? Hes 10lbs 2oz
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 8 months ago

Axid dose is; 5-10 mg/kg/day divided q in 12 hourly.

Baby Mylanta doses again have to individualized by the doctor as there are specific guidelines.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
