Drugs for reflux disease in infants may come with unintended consequences


This is a great article about infant reflux. She cautions against giving reflux medications because 1) they often don't work and 2) they can have unintended side-effects. She explains reflux well but, unfortunately, she does not mention a tongue as a possible cause. Still, good to know that proton-pump inhibitors can be bad for baby bones. She reports that "a survey found that from 2000 to 2003, infant use of a type of antacid called proton-pump inhibitors quadrupled." Wish they would start looking for tongue ties on a routine basis.
