My 8 year old has ADHD and a Anxiety disorder.. He has been put on 2 different medications (Strattera and Zoloft) to help control it and one nasty side effect is that he has now lost a bunch of weight.. I was considering when I talk to my Doctor about lowering his dosage levels and to also put him on a appetite stimulant to help him feel hungry so he will eat,and seeing as he is an already picky eater that just adds to it... what is your opinion? I have tried everything from letting him help me cook to giving him protein shakes as well as sending him out to play with his friends.. I am so frustrated... Please help..
