Reflux re evaluation: There is still a possibility for the reflux to continue. Symptoms include pain during or after eating, vomiting, spitting up. Aspiration of stomach contents into the airway may cause cough, respiratory illness and congestion for example. As she gains weight, the dose may need to be adjusted. P ls fax prmg at 858 259 9689 pediatric/resp for additional info. I hope that this helps.
