About drug good though also negative meet:

  • "… We did not even represent that in the first months after the child's birth to us it will be so heavy. The baby constantly cried at night, and we terribly did not get enough sleep, for work it was madly heavy to wake up. Our nurse told that the little one has usual gripes and Espumizan suggested us to try. I bought Espumizan 40 in the form of liquid for newborns, dripped him on a spoon and gave to the baby 15 droplets. Usually in 15 minutes she ceased to cry and fell asleep. And so was for nearly three months, and then gripes passed. Excellent means".
  • "… We, as well as many parents passed test gripes. It was the nightmare, the child cries, rolls out legs and it is impossible to make anything. We were really helped by Espumizan 40. I gave medicine on a tea spoon right after feeding. And problems in 1-2 days disappeared. We did not notice shortcomings at medicine".

Despite good effect, it is necessary not to forget that it is drug for a symptomatic treatment. If gripes, abdominal distention, a meteorism you or your child often disturb, it is necessary to pass inspection and to find out the reason.
