Vomiting/ Reflux is ranitidine and domperidone the answer?

Just been prescribed anti sickness med domperidone to use alongside ranitidine for reflux as DS brings up large quantities of feed and in discomfort and pain with reflux.

I'm dubious about anti sickness med being the solution but my GP talked me around.

However several ppl on FB group have already said how it didn't work for them and even it has been reported that GPs been told not to prescribe as not enough evidence to say it works and if used for long periods of time can cause heart problems!!!

What in the world is going to stop my baby being in pains and throwing up?!??

We had horrendous reflux (the stop breathing in hospital type) and domperidone and renitidine worked for us.

We switched from renitidine to omeprazole a few months later.
