My 4 yrold was given his DTAP shot a few wks ago & found out today dr accidentally gave adolescent dosage! But was told will cause no side effects?

It doesn't matter: No worries. The older kid's dose is for ages 10-11 years and above, and is called Tdap. The younger kid's dose is called DTaP. Notice that the "d" and the "p" in the older kid's vaccine is lower case, while those letters are capitalized (upper case) in the younger kid's vaccine. That is because the older kid's vaccine has a bit LESS stuff in it (the younger kid's vaccine is slightly "stronger"). ...Read more

Side effects of increasing Paxil (paroxetine) dosage?

Side effects of increasing Paxil (paroxetine) dosage?

This occurs because the relative change in dose is smaller with each increase. ...Read more

Noticeable change: The intention behind the change is important to know and so I can only surmise what it was although both good and bad things may happen as with most changes. The Provigil is more subtle in both therapeutic effects and side effects. The Provigil may cause less jitteriness and anxiety and will not have appetite suppression.
