Hi XXXXX,

Thank you for your query.

The active ingredient in Ecabet Sodium is Sulfodehydroabietic acid monosodium salt which is patented in Canada under Patent Document No. 0000. Hence this medicine should be available in Canada.

For laryngopharyngeal reflux behavioural changes are recommended in the form of weight loss and dietary changes. If medical treatment fails (which usually does), Nissen fundoplication procedure is recommended. Hence, I would suggest that you discuss with your doctor the various alternatives in case you do not get the medicine in Canada.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction. Please feel free to revert back in case you need any clarifications or would like to share more facts.

Wishing you all the best.

Regards,
