Hey,

Is vallergan the correct spelling? Or is the drug valergen? There is a difference.. one vallergan isn't recognized in my pharmacological data base and two.. if it is valergen it is an estrogen hormone replacement and strickly warned against being give to prepubescent girls.

Phenergan is easy.. it is just a mild anti-histamine. However the best anti-histamine for a child is zyrtec as know as citrizine generically I believe.

Now is the risperedil for the ADHD? Is it actually spelled, Risperdal? Risperedil doesn't show up in my database either.

For a fact: Risperdal should be used with extreme caution in CHILDREN; safety and effectiveness in children have not been confirmed by any medical testing.

If it is well Risperdal was made and has been determined to be used for: Treating schizophrenia or bipolar mania. ADHD is not a recommended condition for this medication.

All medicines may cause side effects of Risperdal the most COMMON side effects that seem to be applying in a persist manner are:
Agitation; anxiety, difficulty concentrating, nervousness, sleeplessness.
These symptoms would indicate seeing your MD and getting a change in medication.

I am worried about the medicine prescribed to your daughter. The synthetic hormone alone can cause serious physical developemental issues alone. Hopefully i am wrong, but I would question the medications. Maybe check with the pharmacist about what the medications should be used for..

ADHD is often treated using conventional prescription medications such as stimulants like Ritalin, Adderall and Concerta, as well as the non-stimulant drug Strattera. These are the safest and most common to be used in children.

Sincerely, MG
