Are there any long-term effects associated with taking ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? If so, what are they and what medications are implicated? What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems? What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment?

Depends on what medicine you are taking. But generally there are no long term effects of adhd medicines. Atomoxetin can effect liver function tests but it is reversible on stopping the medicine. Methylphenidate is safe and has no long term effects. Regarding spine block injections kindly discuss with an orthopedic surgeon.

Rohan is a 3 months old baby. When I was holding him in front of cradle, he bent back and his head banged to the cradle, I'm worried will this cause a problem for him in future?

Head holding is not attained by an infant by three months. You should be careful next time while holding the child as the child has no head control and the head tends to fall backwards. I don't think the present occurrence would lead to any future complications but be careful from next time.

It's atopic dermatitis. Apply desoven cream small quantities over affected areas once a day and atogla cream larger quantities. First cream for 5 days and second for 10 days thanks. Use atogla cream twice a day for 7 days.

We have a 7 days old daughter but my wife unable to produce her breast milk and my daughter is not able to feed her breast milk please suggest with remedy.

You can try lactare tablets - 2 tablet once daily and see if it helps. Best is to keep trying by putting the baby to the breast and expressing the milk that comes out. It should gradually increase.

It is possible that baby may have a retractile testis which you could not feel. This condition may improve with the growing age or by manipulating practice. Other reason may be undescended testis which may create problem. Before going for U/S abdomen which may reveal undescended testis, consult pediatrician.

Hello, If your child is active and does not fall sick often, there is nothing to worry. He is not extremely underweight, but you need to improve on his protein, calcium and iron requirements.

While breast feeding please make sure you have nourishing food which you can digest well. Any food which causes stomach upset in you will affect baby. You can have mangoes but do not over do it.

He has completed 9 months but his weight is not increasing from 5th month. His weight is still 8 kg as he was in 5th month. I am giving him diet of meshed cereals, cerelac, and some vegetables (5 meals a day ). Also to mention that he does not like mother's milk, every time he refuses that within a minute or two. Please suggest.

Don't compare his wt with 5 month's wt. Now his expected wt should be about 9 kg. 8 kg is slightly at lower side. As the child grows, his wt doesn't increase with the same pace as at younger age. I am not seeing any place of milk or its product in his 5 meals. Give him ideally 2 meals but not more than 3 meals in a day consisting of varieties like ghee added haluwa, rice/ sujee kheer, khichadi, dal-roti very small pieces, vegetables well cooked in ghee/ oil, fruits etc of his taste and to develop taste. 3-4 times sweetened milk and rest breast milk 3-4 times. Probably he may be refusing mother's milk because she may be trying to feed her own milk most of time. If it is so I hope with above regime he shall like mother's feed and start gaining wt.

Normal at ths age pain abdomen needs deworming with albendazole every 6 months regularly. Now adays junk food nd bad dietary habits leads to worm infestation commonly and pain abd. Other most common is mesenteric lymphadenopathy which will be fine as your child grows nothing to worry. Some kids evn have psychological pain abdomen fr their wish to be fulfilled not going school or they under some fear and all.

To advise, it had been better if her height and weight is known. Leave her at her liberty to eat whatever she wants. Don't thrust your chice on her.
