As above says, can these be given together?
My 5 weeks old baby boy was prescribed infant gaviscon, however it resulted in him becoming constipated (he’s been prescribed lactulose now) and as he was only allowed 6 sachets within 24 hours it wasn’t ideal as he takes more than 6 bottles per day (as he’s not taking a lot of milk at once) so he was still sometimes in some discomfort.
He’s now been prescribed ranintadine however he’s bringing up more milk now (I guess because the gaviscon thickens the milk and he’s not taking that now) and to be honest he seems more distressed than he was before just on the gaviscon.
I’m wondering am I able to give him both? I’m pretty sure they work in different ways but still wasn’t sure if they can be given together?
I wouldn’t give the 6 sachets per day, but even just being able to give him maybe 3/4 a day with his ranintadine.
I’ve ordered some carobel to thicken his milk but this will take a few days to come so just hoped to be able to do this until this arrives.
