I'm sorry to hear about your daughter. What a rough time for you both, I would imagine. Make sure you do talk to the doctor about this. Share her symptoms and your concerns. You can also look up drugs and their side affects there on WebMD. Click here: Drugs A-Z.
I hope that helps, but you are doing the right thing taking her back to the docs.View Thread
Dear members, WebMD will be covering President Obama's State of the Union address closely on Tuesday, Jan. 25, at 9 p.m. ET, and the Republican response afterwards as it regards that state of health care in our country. We will also be live-tweeting during both events, and we hope you'll follow us on Twitter and search for #wbmdsotu to join in the conversation.
As part of the event, we'll be gathering member questions about health care reform both before and after the president's address and will present those questions to Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius, in a roundtable panel on Thursday, Jan. 27, at 4:30 p.m. ET. We invite you to submit your questions , and then join us in the live event on Thursday to see how they were addressed.
If you are unable to view the event live, we'll be posting the video up on our WebMD Newsroom blog.
We hope that this information will be helpful to you as you try to navigate all the new changes in our country's health care system.
Hey there members! We're compiling a list of all the events and milestones that our members like to keep track of in their lives. For instance, most of us like to keep track of birthdays of family and friends. Parents like to keep a record of when their children hit milestones, such as rolling over, first words, walking, cutting a tooth. And, many of us keep track of our medications, treatments and doctors visits. Members of our Breast Cancer community like to share with others when they have been "Cancer Free" for six months, a year, two years, and on.
Think about what you like to keep track of and milestones you like to share with your family and friends and post them here in this thread. I bet you all keep track of a lot of things our staff would never think of!

Rare DNA Errors in ADHD Kids Linked to Brain-Development Genes Sept. 29, 2010 -- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a brain disorder and not purely a behavioral problem, say the first researchers to identify rare genetic errors in ADHD kids.People with ADHD have an unusually large number of "copy number variants" or CNVs -- chunks of DNA that are either missing or duplicated, says study researcher Anita Thapar, MD, professor of child and adolescent psychiatry at Cardiff University in Wales. "These missing or duplicated chunks of DNA are in the areas of the chromosome that overlap with those implicated in autism and schizophrenia , [which are> established brain disorders," Thapar said at a news conference. "And we found that the most significant excess of these copy number variants was in a specific region ... that includes genes for brain development."
