My 4 year old daughter was on griseofulvin for ring worm on the scalp. within 2 days there were noticeable mental/mood changes in her. she began this medicine in November and was on it for 6 weeks. it is now april and her mental/mood changes have not changed.. Has anyone had this problem or know if months later she can still be having side effects?
Side effects reported with this drug, related to your daughter's situation are headache, fatigue and rarely mental confusion. But these effects wont be likely to stay 3 months, after the treatment ends.
My question is, was the treatment successful? The infection on a very open place may effect her on her social life. You should consider mood effect of the condition itself, and give support to your child about this issue. Best wishes
