Brief Answer: continue lanzol Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for writing to health care magic. From your query I understand that your daughter had respiratory infection and wheezing which was treated appropriately. GERD is a common problem in babies. Usually settles by one year when the junction between stomach and food pipe becomes tight Till then it needs to be treated if present with the medicines your doctor has given you. Both the medicines are safe with no significant side effects. Don't worry it will settle soon. Regards Dr Arun

Brief Answer: All are corticosteroids Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing back. All the three are corticosteroids . They are given for severe wheezing. They can cause plenty of side effects like immunosuppression, bone weakness, etc but only if given repeatedly for prolonged periods. Continue other medicines for GERD. Regards,
