Will phototherapy cause side effects for a two and a half year old ?

Will phototherapy cause side effects for a  two and a half year old ?

Possibly: Not because of any direct effect of phototherapy. In that age child, phototherapy has not been used in any studies i could find. Trying to use phototherapy on a child that age i believe, would likely be ineffective and possibly harmful. Harmful because they are developmentally too young to participate in or understand what is happening and could become afraid and traumatized unnecessarily. ...Read more

My 4 year old recently started seroquel (quetiapine) and I am worried about it.What specific side effects can this cause or should I look for?When will she adjust?

Second opinion: While it is difficult to provide specific recommendations and despite knowing the details of your child's condition, i might consider obtaining a second opinion. Are you taking your child to a board certified child psychiatrist? I have personally seen over 18, 000 kids, but have never treated a four year old with seroquel (quetiapine).

I'm18 years old and I am having hair fall. Currently using Androanagen tablets. They have any side effects ?
Do masturbation cause hair loss

Wrong question: Any side effects from this pill will be irrelevant because they are completely useless for anything. The only person to benefit is the person who sells this silly combination of worthless herbs. Don't be such a sucker. NO, masturbation does NOT cause hair loss or acne. It will not make you blind, either. The correct question is "should I buy androanagen tablets?" The answer is NO!!! ...Read more
