I would like to know why my foster son was prescribed this medicine and how it will effect him. he was born with meth, alcohol, and nicotine in his system, he is delayed developmentally, malnourished, and severe neglected. His head was flat and he cannot talk, walk or crawl, and he is 25 months old. what is in store for me? what is carnitore sf used for?
Carnitor is used for low carnitine levels. It is an essential compound which is needed to produce energy in the Mitochondria. If he is deficient in Carnitine then he might have more energy while on the medication.
I am sorry but without an exam and extensive history it is difficult to inform you of how well your son will progress or if he will be helped with Carnitor.
