Default Children under 3 Years

We have had our 3 year old son on Strattera and has been working great for the last 12 weeks. As soon as we took him off it we noticed that he was back to his usual over active bouncing off walls self! We have been reccommended to go back on it for another period. However, after reading some of the side effects (which we have not encountered), i am now concerned about the long term effects. Especially on children at the age of 3. I cant seem to find anything for this age group. I need help before making a decision one way or another. Further my son has only one Kidney and so i am really concerned long term. My Pediatrician has said nothing to worry about.<br>Anyone can help?<br>

First of all the Strattera website specifies to not give to a child under 6. It is a capsule that is not to be opened but swallowed whole. Why would you put your 3 year old on medication to begin with? Let the poor child develop and grow up a little. I noticed this was posted 3 years ago. I hope you child has not been on drugs all this time.

Since your boy has only 1 kidney, then you should be careful when you give him any type of medications... visit the doctor and ask for his help, don't decide what is the better for your child by yourself...
