Shawna: First time Mom to Mallory (10/07/08). Silent reflux diagnosed at 2 months. Alimentum formula fed. Trial of Losec (minimal effect). Now Prevacid 1x/day plus Zantac 2x/day.
Motility meds and agitation
Just wondering if anyone experienced any side effects with motility drugs that involved extreme agitation. We started a motility drug (domperidone) just over 2 weeks ago and DD has gradually gotten more irritable/agitated for periods during the day. It starts with squealing, progresses to screaming, grunting and seems to be abdominal tensing. She's also grabbing at her face a lot (eyes/nose), chewing and drooly so I can't tell if it's teething or med side effect or something else all together (as is the lovely unknowing world of reflux). It just seems to be really 'over the top' if it was just teething. Oddly enought this happens mostly when in her exersaucer.... Any suggestions would help as of course our ped'n is on holidays this week....
