Medkinet - First day
2

JolieJ · 09/05/2022 11:22

My 7 year old took his first dose of 5mg Medkinet this morning..he's at school now and I'm sitting around wondering how he's getting on.

On the doctors suggestion we didn't tell his teacher he took it. When I pick him up I'll casually ask her how his day was and see what she says.

I just hope he adapts to it okay and it ends up being beneficial for him

Anyone else with experience?

@KnottyAuty he was absolutely fine side effects wise! It was 10mg dosage which is the lowest I think.
I asked his teacher how his day went and she just said fine, I didn't say anything as we want to give it a few days before we tell her to get an honest opinion.

He did become a bit animated around the time the dosage was meant to wear off but nothing extreme.

Day 2 today! I guess we'll see how he is on this dosage but more than likely the doctor may suggest to increase it at the next review.
