Pediatrician 's  Response

Thank you for your query.

Answering your second question first, there is no documented evidence linking antispasmodic to delayed skeletal motor activities. There must be other causes for the delayed motor activities in the known baby.

Colimax should be given as and when required and there is no need to give it very frequently and for days. One should not feel the need for giving it for more than a day or two at any instance. In my own pediatric practice of more than 30 years I have never used it in my patients. One should strive to find the cause of so called alleged "colic pain" before prescribing the drug.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.
