Hi, my 3.5 month old boy has always had some reflux issues and is diagnosed with silent reflux. He was on ranitidine which worked for about a week then wore off, and is now on Omeprazole. However he is still in discomfort when feeding and often starts crying when he sees the bottle, as he has developed an aversion. He is on anti-reflux formula and we are only successful in feeding him when he is asleep, presumably because he is a calm and relaxed. Has anyone ever had this? Drugs don’t seem to be working well enough... help! Can’t leave the house...!

Is he taking enough of the medication? As is based on weight, so amount needs to increase as he puts on weight. I don't think the anti-reflux formula is helpful as it's thicker, so more painful when it comes back up (apparently) and not proven to be any better. Suggest going back to GP and checking dosage.

You night want to move this to a more suitable area of the forum

Yes, where would you suggest?

Yes, will do. I think he might need a higher dose too...
