Does Lactogen Cause Any Side Effects To Babies
Hasn't been studied: Children living in homes where second-hand cigarette smoke is present have a higher incidence of upper respiratory infections, sinus problems and asthma, and get pneumonia more often as well. It is very possible the same thing occurs with marijuana smoke, but I can find no studies. It is not a good idea, and if one must smoke, it should be outside the home, on a porch or balcony, or another room. ...Read more
Born with defects: I'm not sure if you mean which trimester (s) is it dangerous for the baby or when do the side effects show up after the baby is born, but the problems or defects are present at birth. ...Read more

It's illegal, child: Endangerment. Smoking mj, tobacco, crack, etc. Inside or out of the home (it clings to fabrics) makes your baby a passive smoker, bad for his lungs & brain. Because of smaller body surface area, babies get "stoned" by much lower amts. Of mj than adults. Being in an altered state impairs infant development. If a sole caretaker is high, baby's risk of accidental injury or death is also high. ...Read more
Temporary: Brethine (terbutaline) was once used for asthma, but is now more commonly used in late pregnancy to stop preterm contractions. Should not be given to infants/kids. Wears off quickly, so if used to stop labor & labor doesn't stop, by time baby is born med has worn off. In anyone of any age, the most common side effect of terbutaline is brief spell of feeling flushed, fast heart rate or jitteriness. ...Read more
DO NOT USE!!:
Reglan (metoclopramide) has a Black Box Warning from the FDA. This is only used when a drug poses serious side effects. Reglan (metoclopramide)
can cause tardive dyskinesia. The internet and chat rooms
are filled with discussions of supplements or medications to increase breast milk. Most don't work or are outright dangerous. It makes no sense to treat yourself AND YOUR BABY with medication for a non-illness. ...Read more

Does using gripe water along with dentinox colic drops for babies have side effects? Sedative? Harmful?
Usually ok: Doctors usually don't give babies any medications, even over-the-counter items, unless there's good benefit. A mom can bring the items to the doctor to check the ingredients, but a little bit of a trusted brand of gas drops and gripe water drops are ok to try. They may or may not help any colicky symptoms. If they don't seem to help, then they shouldn't be used. ...Read more
Do to a fall, my 6 week old infant needed a cat scan. What are the side effects of a scan at such a young age? The dr said cancer but how soon?
Wouldn't worry: There is a tiny increase in cancer risk later in life children who have a bunch of ct scans. We're exposed to unavoidable natural radiation every day, and compared to this, the dose you get from a worthwhile ct scan is trivial. I'm glad junior is okay and has a parent who care so much. ...Read more
Doubt connection: Any learning disabilities suffered by a premi that survives most likely represent factors that precipitated premature delivery & the need for resuscitation & intensive care, not the ct scan. Last year my patient, "littlest angel" (14oz @ birth) graduated from the honors program at baylor in 3 yrs. It didn't slow her down. She never got real tall but she is quite a survivor. ...Read more

My 10 months child has diahrea, she feeding formula Lactogen 2, I don't know whether I hav to change the formula or what I must do, please help?
Recent change?: If you have RECENTLY changed to Lactogen and the diarrhea started, then the diarrhea may be caused by the new formula. However, if you have ALWAYS fed the Lactogen, and the diarrhea has only recently started, look for another cause. Offering an electrolyte solution such as Pedialyte after each loose stool can help prevent dehydration. Bloody diarrhea is always cause for concern, needing doctor. ...Read more
If one ADHD med causes bad side effects for my child (nausea), is it likely that all of the other types will as well?
No: One adhd medicine can very well cause a side effect that another one does not. It's an individual thing; one child does very well on methylphenidate and has a problem with amphetamine salts. A second child is just the opposite. A third needs something else entirely. The key is for you and your doctor to work together to find what works best for your child. ...Read more
E.G. Does smoking bontical inceses have any side effects? And does it hurt an unborn baby? Will it cause the eye to turn red?
Do u mean botanical?: If so, they are not meant to be smoked, and nobody knows what is in them. Anything out of the ordinary has the potential to hurt an unborn baby. Stopping smoking of anything (especially tobacco, but also marijuana, incense etc etc) would be better for you and your unborn child. Anything you smoke can irritate your eyes. Sounds like you need some counseling, please seek some help. ...Read more
