After a couple years of complaining to my pediatrician that my sons growth was decreasing, the doctor finally looked back on his growth chart far enough to see that since starting medication a few years ago (he's now 9), he has gone from the 50% percentile in height and weight to closer to the 10th percentile for both I feel guilty for causing such a significant decrease in his size, and feel like I've ruined how his body is "supposed" to be. I question if we will be able to last with no medication over the summer but I'm definitely going to try in hopes of bringing up his size. With those of you have that have seen growth stunted due to medication, did you feel you were ever able to regain it when you stopped? Im really hoping I didn't do permanent damage. Any advice for helping to pack on the pounds? Or for tips for surviving med free?
