My son is 9 years old and has been on Zarontin for 4 years and I am concerned that his loss of appetite has caused his growth to be stunted, will he re-capture this growth(height and weight) after coming off of the drung? Are there any medications that would help him with his growth that would be safe?

Hello robinhoods. Its a question that I researched and came up without yes or a no for an answer. ( my own opinion without being able to confirm it, is yes, however I'm not a doctor) I know its one of the older drugs used to help fight seizures. I am going to dig a bit further, and see what I might beable to find. Hopefully, I'll have an answer for you. Very best to you and your son,pledge
