GERD in infants

Can LANSOPRAZOLE be given in 2 MONTH baby for treatment of GERD ?



It can be given. But to me, it's not a good approach. Better to find out the cause of GERD to 2 months ol old baby.. Congenital defects....Breast feeding practice should be reviewed. Try only liquid Antacid.. PPI has its own consequences .

problem with these is they are available only in tablet form . hard to make small sachets n give it to baby . its a cumbersome process . i will recommend nexpro jr sachet . esmoprazole . still the drug of choice in these cases

YES IT CAN BE.. DOSE.. 0.5 to 1 mg / kg/ day ..

Tnx Dr Jitendra Patidar

Yes in infants:- 1 and 2 mg/kg/day.

I thik Perinorm drops better.

Yes , you can . Advise to keep child in propped up position , 30 degree & other supportive measures.

Yes... u can be given..
