Brief Answer:
No serious side effects...

Detailed Answer:

This is one of the safest and well tolerated medication. In some individuals it can cause dryness, fatiguability and tiredness. But most people do well without any disadvantages.

If your daughter has no complaints and is doing well until now, then she should continue to do so. No long term side effects expected. Moreover as she grows, the doctor might consider tapering and stopping the medication. So you need not be overly worried.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need any other information.
