But my experience of its usefulness is anecdotal and I would only suggest it was used sparingly. In the end, Sasha improved after being given ranitidine. This works in a similar way to PPIs but while PPIs totally shut down acid production, ranitidine just reduces.'But I think these steps are being jumped through much quicker than they used to be. In some very specific, severe cases, proton pump inhibitors such as lanzoprazole are of benefit, adds Dr Thomson. But there was no way I was going to let her go on that drug after what it did to her brothers especially as Sarah learned that her childrens reflux is likely linked to allergies.
Indeed, research suggests that proton pump inhibitors do very little to help reflux in babies and children. Some experts believe this is because the real problem is the babys anatomy, or an allergy (and not stomach acid).Reflux is often triggered by an allergy normally to cows milk which seems to cause irritation and swelling in the nerves and muscles around the sphincter. In the past few years, two reviews of the evidence for proton pump inhibitors found theyre not an effective.
Her son Theo, now two, suffered from mild reflux from birth, but it worsened after he suffered an allergic reaction to fish at 12 months old. He would scream after each feed and writhe around for hours on end.Our paediatrician told them she shouldnt have this medication due to the reaction of her brothers and that she did not need to be on such a strong medication, says Sarah.
She still suffers from allergies, so we have to avoid certain foods. 'But keeping on top of that means she doesnt suffer from reflux. 'She didnt need a proton pump inhibitor to achieve that.The link between proton pump inhibitors and infection in children is not clear (theres been just one small study, involving older children). However, many children dont need the drugs in the first place, says Dr Thomson, because stomach acid is not the real problem.
