Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Motilium is a pro-kinetic drug (promotes peristalsis - forward movement at bowel)
It is for symptomatic treatment of vomiting.
For definitive treatment, the child needs examination and/or investigation to arrive at proper diagnosis...there could be several reasons, the usual one is reflux...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

Pediatrician Dr. Y V Siva Sankara Murty's  Response

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Children with GERD i.e. gastro esophageal reflux disease have recurrent episodes of vomiting.

Endoscopy and lower esophageal ph monitoring are useful in confirming the diagnosis.

Force feeding is also one of the various causes of vomiting.

Severe cough can cause vomiting in a child in whom the stomach is full.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
