The reason I ask. My mom doctor prescribe this for her. Question: Is it safe because she's an adult? Plus she had 2 stage cancer? Right now she doing 45% better but she has back pains of arthritis, gastritis of her stomach and pain of her right arm, What is your input about it?
StandTro; YES!! I dispensed a lot of this to our elders when wanted to make sure they were getting a little extra supplement there is nothing in here that well hurt mom. You say her stomach gets upset so try and give it when she has food in her stomach. When ill like your mother we can use all we can to help give us a edge on our health.This is why many older patients doses on other drugs are also lowered because there system reverts back to like a child and they don't need as much because they are not burning enough.This is extra and if she has lost weight the liquid ensure,or boost but you get so tired of it.a liquid drink if she does need that get the one with the most calories.And comes in many flavors you can always dilute it with milk if she says its to thick or sweet. But no problem on the child vitamin. Have a good evening give mom a hug and glad your looking out for her. Medically Retired pharmacy technician CPHT.ALSO stage 4 myself but fighting.My heart goes out to you feel free to post again any questions we have a lot of fantastic helpful people here that try to help.
