Anyone giving this to there child under 10yrs old for bipolar disorder
Concerneddad; Yes and you can always double check with the doctor but they have recommended of using this for kids 10 years or older but when the doctor comes with a case like your child they do use this in a way that is off-label and previous use by others Where this is the best medication for your child's problem the recommended dose is just a guide for the doctor. But I do see this going all the way down to 2 years old's rare but it can be. More at the discretion of the doctor and their previous experience But one thing to remember this is timed release so never break the pill or any other way of giving this to your child. you're in good hands. But you can always call and ask your child's doctor. Chuck1957 hope this helps and have a Merry Christmas.
