My son had acid reflux since he was born. We had a prescription, but for when his tummy was really bad or hurt him, the doc had me give him 1/2 tsp. mylanta.........works like a charm. It is not bad for them either, he said as often as i needed to give it, but i followed the recommended maximum doses on the bottle. It works in a manner of minutes to maybe 30 minutes. Call your doc if you feel uncomfortable about this, but i have had to deal with stomach pains and acid for 5 yrs now with him.
