Child screaming after feeding also, spits out feed, has reflux on medicine with no relief. What to do?

Hello. My name is Deneka. I gave birth to my son at 26 weeks and 5 days on November 29. He is now a little over 4 months. For a about a week now he has been screaming after eating his bottle like he wants more when he has a full tummy. Also he is spitting up about half his bottle in between bottles. He has reflux and is on medicine for it, I have told his doctor it's not working so she just upped it, it's still not working. All day long it's screaming and being soaked from spit up. And he never has a tempature. Can you please help?

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Your description is suggestive of GERD (gastro esophageal reflux disease)

Prokinetics prescribed by your doctor will be useful.

Do not keep you baby in lying down position immediately after a feed.

Some times H2 blockers or proton pump inhibitors are also prescribed.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
