Hello Doctor... My 6 years old son is suddenly having heart burn/ acid reflux in the middle of the night.. Probably some spicy food. Is gelusil ok?

In brief: The age group

recommendation for Gelusil is 12 and up.
You may want to try Tums, (calcium carbonate) if that is available and speak to his doctor about possible causes if it continues.
