Irregular period, lethargic, loss of appetite. On proglyuton. Help?

Dear Doc,
My daughter had her first menses when she was 9 1/2. It has been regular until recently. Since December 2012 she has been having it almost thrice a month. The doctor's advise is for her to take proglyuton for 3 months. She just turned 13 when she was on it and this is her 2nd month of taking it. She has loss of appetite and is constantly feeling lethargic. Is this normal and what's your take on proglyuton for a kid?

Thanks for the query.

As she is having irregular periods, by taking pills the hormonal levels can be maintained and irregularity can be treated.
So she can complete the course as adviced by your doctor.
While taking the hormonal pills some side effects can be seen. These can be decreased to some extent by taking the pills after food and taking symptomatic therapy.
Though she is 13 years old, as she is having menstrual cycles now the hormones may not have side effects on her.

For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
