thanks for your quiry to HcM
thats good to listen that your son is in remission
and its a safer drug with little side affects
your child growth, blood pressure and blood counts should be monitored regularly
keep an eye on your childs fever and blood in urine

with all these monitorings be in touch with your physician
i am confident that he will do good
other options are also available and you can ask me
good luck
