I am seriously questioning our endo at this point. Our daughter is slightly overweight, so he has given her some medications that are supposed to help her lose weight. What concerns me is he's put her on Metformin. I read the insert, and it said that Metformin is not recommended for children 10 and under. When I called the pharmacist, he said that studies had not been done on the medication for children, and that is the doctor has experience with the medication, it should be fine. I had to work, so I could not go to the endo appointment with them. James asked the endo how safe it was, and he said he hadn't seen any problems with it. The only problems he had seen were some children who started throwing up after having their dosage increased to two pills at a time. He has her on one pill twice daily, and he has also put her on acerbose three times daily. Both are supposed to help her lose weight. He has also put her on an exercise regimen, which today has left her extremely sore. I am skeptical, to say the least. Has anyone else had any experience with this, and was it positive or negative? I'm scared. I'm scared for her.
