Hi manish,
Welcome to HCM!
Thanks for posting your query. I am happy to address your questions. The antacid is already been given in the form of rabeprazole + domperidone to take care of nausea as well. The sporolac can be given before the meals as it will prevent gastric upsets. She can be added TusQ- X which has terbutaline and bromhexine (which will benefit her as well). Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be happy to help. Thanks
