Has anyone used Periactim for an appetite increase on their 2 year old son?? My bestfriend's 2 year old son has no appetite and underweight... her ped told her to put him on Periactim.. is anyone out there tried this?? Thanks!

I haven't seen Periactrim since I was a child and took it personally, but not as a 2 yo! My oldest son was underweight, and his pediatrician told me that kids that age go through that stage of picky-eating. Instead of putting him on vitamin, he insists that I try mixing up his food with sauces or giving him soft food. It worked! Of course, you might try other avenues, like Glenda says and check out the med over the internet, too. Good luck!

My boys are older, but they weren't underweight, but they did go through spell where they wouldn't eat, But, they would start when they were getting ready for a growth spurt then I couldn't hardly get them to stop. My pediatrician at the time said not to worry about it, but like I said they weren't underweight, and I haven't seen Peractim, but you since you have internet, look it up and check it out.
