Brief Answer:
symptoms are suggestive of reflux

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Some of the symptoms are suggestive of reflux. See that your child does not lie down immediately after having meal. See that there is time lag between having food and lying down. Some times pro kinetics and antacids as prescribed by your doctor will be required. Elevation of the head end of the bed may help.
Some times bronchial asthma may present like this. Here usage of bronchi dilators lisalbutamol etc in inhaled form may be required.
Preventor therapy may be required if the symptoms are severe and frequent.
Hope this helps.
Take care.

Brief Answer:
Dietary changes are better than medicines.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX XXXXXXX

Medicines have short term effects only. They may keep the stool soft for a few days. But in the longer term dietary and lifestyle changes are important. We give Syrup Lactulose for our patients with constipation. But this is only for a short duration of around 10 days or so during which time life style changes can be built up.
Give her diet XXXXXXX in fiber. Fresh fruits and vegetables are important.
Let her play actively and do not allow to sit in front of the television or computer.
Avoid junk foods like chocolates, soft drinks, colas, sweets, etc.
Give her plenty of water to drink.

Hope I answered your query.
Take care.
