A child with acid reflux (GERD) is in a chronic state of discomfort every time he/she eats, becoming wary of swallowing anything. Medication is necessary to reduce acid and reflux action, to promote nutrition, growth and wellbeing.
Snell's Pharmacy can help overcome the challenge of medicating a child with acid reflux by preparing oral suspensions mixed with flavorings. The suspensions are custom-dosed and flavored based on the child's weight, symptoms and taste preference. Medications may include proton pump inhibitors Lansoprazole, Omeprazole and Pantoprazole.
