Periactin for appetite
Does anyone know why Periactin stimulates a child's appetite? How does it work? What is the mechanism of action? I am asking because I do see a difference in my child. It is like flipping a switch on and off. If she is not taking it she does not eat. When we start giving it to her again... ta-da, she starts eating. I am not exaggerating. My 21 month old will go from drinking 8-10 ounces of milk a day and very few bites of food to drinking at least 16+ ounces of milk and three small meals when taking Periactin. Anyone know how/why this works???

Periactin vs Provacid
My son is prescribed to Periactin but I didn't give to him yet b/c I'm worried the side effects. Does your daughter have GERD and is it why she is on Periactin? Does she take any other medications like Provacid? I just took Provacid off from my 1 year old son but he has been having projective vomit almost every meal and almost everything he eats. Idon't know what to do at this point. Trying to decide wait out more to see if the rebound is almost over, go back to Provacid or try out Periactin? I'm also wondering if just having Periactin will it help with the projective vomit or not? Do you know the answers? Any feedbacks helps! Thanks!
