This protocol has been withdrawn

Cisapride should only be prescribed on the direct instructions of the specialist looking after the baby, after due consideration of the potential adverse effects and the lack of evidence to support its use in the treatment of Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease in infants.

A paper copy of the withdrawn protocol is available from the departmental secretary.
