Hi Retrodad,

Thank you for your input. It’s helpful to speak to someone who has had similar experiences. Are you saying you gave up on the medication after all? We may end up in the same situation if we can’t find a solution. This is his second round of medication trials. He had a 10 months gap because he lost so much weight the first time (and didn’t grow!). His confidence so far is good. I worry that he’ll lack confidence by not doing well in school. But things can change quickly when watching the scale dip at every weigh-in.
