Thanks for your question. According to Mylanta's drug information, it is to be taken after meals, though it does not specifiy if that is different for children and adults. Dosage and frequency for infants should be determined by a doctor. I hope this helps.
My 3mo old daughter has reflux, We were on zantac but it seemed to make her cry alot while we waited the 30 min b4 she ate... I then researched and seen ppl were giving mylanta, asked her specialist and he said I could give her 2ml every time i fed her(after or in the bottle). Only the cherry supreme because it doesnt contain alluminium. Just from experience it can cause dihrea(sorry on spelling) and urine to smell. But it works wonders and it is all we are on right now, well and rice thicken'd formula. Good luck
I have a 7 month old with reflux. i want to try mylanta for her too, but how much should i give her?
It is best to check with the doctor or pharmacist about dosing for a baby. Often the dose of medication is based on age and weight. You want to make sure she is getting the right dose.
