Hi lybrate-user you must be giving formula feed to the baby. If yes please stop that and give breast milk with some cereal diet like khichdi etc. The problem will be solved.

I have a 10 years old boy suspect adhd. He take atomoxetine hydrochloride for 1 month. Any other remedy is available which has no side effects?

Atomoxetine may increase the risk of suicidal thoughts or actions in children and teenagers with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd). Talk with the patient's doctor to be sure that the benefits of using atomoxetine outweigh the risks. Families and caregivers must closely watch patients who take atomoxetine. It is important to keep in close contact with the patient's doctor. Tell the doctor right away if the patient has symptoms such as worsened depression, suicidal thoughts, or changes in behavior. Discuss any questions with the patient's doctor. There is no cure for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd), but treatment can help relieve the symptoms and make the condition much less of a problem in day-to-day life. Adhd can be treated using medication or therapy, but a combination of both is often the best way to treat it. There are four types of medication licensed for the treatment of adhd: methylphenidate dexamfetamine lisdexamfetamine atomoxetine these medications are not a permanent cure for adhd, but they can help someone with the condition concentrate better, be less impulsive, feel calmer, and learn and practise new skills. Some medications need to be taken every day, but some can be taken just on school days. Treatment breaks are occasionally recommended, to assess whether the medication is still needed. You can ask me privately and keep me as your family doctor.

The poor appetite of their kids is a common complaint among mothers. In most of the cases, kids make up for their poor diet by eating more at the next meal. For kids over 1 year old, appetites increase and decrease according to age, energy levels etc. This is a common problem among young children between the ages of 2 to 6 years. However, if weight loss accompanies your toddler loss of appetite, then you must consult a pediatrician to identify the cause & correct it. Causes of Loss of Appetite In Children: Here are 10 main reasons for toddler no appetite: 1. Slow Growth Rate: Changes in growth can cause an appetite slump in children. During the first year, children grow rapidly. But after the first birthday the growth of the child slows down, and she may eat less food now. During this time, a decline in appetite is perfectly normal. 2. Sickness: Illness can often cause a significant loss of appetite in children. If your child is suffering from sore throat, stomach flu, diarrhea, headache, fever or other symptoms, then she may eat lesser than what she normally eats. Thankfully, most of the children recover their appetite when they get better. 3. Stress: Stress can have many negative effects on toddlers and young children, including loss of appetite. If you find your child is losing interest in eating or having a hard time sleeping, then. To cure the poor appetite of your kid, you need to identify the cause of her stress and alleviate it. Some common causes of stress during childhood are: •Family issues like a death in the family, death of a pet or the birth of a sibling. •Bullying •Inability to cope with academic pressure and the impractical expectations of parents. 4. Depression: Depression can be another reason for child loss of appetite. Most of the parents mistake depression for sadness. But sadness and depression are not the same. It is important for you to understand the difference between sadness and depression so that your child can get the help she needs. Feelings of sadness go away with the passage of time, but depression does not. Depression not only makes the child sad, but also interferes with her normal life. If your child shows a lack of interest in activities that she previously enjoyed performing, then chances are that she may be suffering from depression. A change in eating habits is a strong indicator of depression. You may need to seek medical care to help your child come out of depression. 5. Anorexia Nervosa: Sometimes, in a bid to ape their screen idols children develop a psychological aversion to eating. They try to go without eating as long as possible. Even when they eat, they choose a low-fat food and later feel guilty about eating it. If you can relate your child to this food fad, she may be suffering from Anorexia Nervosa. You must take her to an eating disorder specialist. The specialist will tell you how to help your child regain a healthy appetite (1). 6. Medications: Several medications can take a toll on your child’s appetite. If the pediatrician prescribed antibiotics for your child recently, chances are she may be suffering from a poor appetite. A loss of appetite in a child is a common side effect of antibiotics (2). 7. Anemia: Anemia is another possible cause of the decline in appetite among children. A low iron count is common in kids who don’t consume an iron-rich diet. Children suffering from anemia seem weaker, tired and irritable than others. If left untreated, anemia can interfere with your child’s development and school performance. Get a blood test done if you suspect anemia in your child. 8. Intestinal Worms: Intestinal worms can cause loss of appetite in kids. Worms enter into the kid’s digestive system and live there like a parasite, causing intestinal bleeding, loss of appetite, dysentery, etc. 9. Constipation: Irregular bowel movements in children can lead to constipation. Tips To Prevent A Loss Of Appetite In Children: Here are some handy tips to prevent a loss of appetite in children: Offer food that is also a visual treat for your kids. You can present healthy foods in a delicious avatar. •Do not argue or scold the children during the mealtime. •Adjust the meal schedules so that you serve food only when your child is hungry. •Encourage your child to make healthy food choices. •Allow your child to snack between the meals. •Serve small portions at regular intervals. •Encourage your child to be more physically active. •Do not force your child to eat if she is not hungry. As a parent, demanding that she finishes the food on her plate is a bad idea. Remember, it is common for children to lose their appetite, so don’t be alarmed every time it happens. If your child is healthy, happy and can sleep well, then there is no need to worry. But a prolonged loss of appetite needs medical attention. So keep an eye on your child’s eating habits.

Hi Doctor, My 4 years son has fever since six days. It was at 104.6 the first three days (lowest being 100, during that time) now the maximum has come down to 101 since day before but its still there. He also has sore throat and vomits once everyday (either morning after having milk or post dinner after medicines). Please advice if we should start with the antibiotics. What should be the line of action. Thanks.

Since temp is coming down without antibiotic and child is taking diet and is not much down, you may continue medicine. It had been better if you have mentioned medicines for proper advice. Even then it is suggested to consult doctor since child is having sore throat too. Vomiting once is not so significant.
