Are there any dangers of combining losec and zantac as a long term solution for reflux

Answer: Hi, At nine months of age he is likely to be developing gut maturity so that reflux is not such a common cause of unsettledness. However, some babies do continue to reflux and have discomfort for longer than others, it's all very individual. Combining Losec and Zantac is a question best answered by a pharmacist or the doctor who prescribed them. Some babies respond well just to one or the other rather than a combination of both.
