The only side effect I had was acute pancreatitis. So if your child starts complaining of high gastric pain, and lots of nausea
after eating, I would get her doc to run some tests, especially her triglyceride levels....

There was a mom on here sometime ago, her little 3 year old had developed pancreatitis after taking 6mp. I'm not trying to
alarm you, there are lots of people who take this drug with no side effects at all, but I think you need to be aware, good luck..
