hi sanjay,
Thanks for using the HCM. I am happy to address your questions, Lanzol junior is a proton pump inhibitor aimed at reducing the gastric acid secretion. In small children reflexes and the nervous circuits controlling these reflexes are not sufficiently mature. Sometimes this also helps clear the thick secretions in the throat which may actually be eliciting the cough causing breathing problems. It will help the acid reflux into the upper oesophagus causing chest pain and the throat that could be precipitating the cough. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks
