Mother of BP Kids

Just curious.....I have three diagnosed kids with BP. My 2-year-old is swinging that way. We've never medicated prior to 5 years of age. The little guy really seems like he is suffering. What is the youngest you've seen treated with mood stabilizers?

I enjoyed the articles on your site! Nice to see my life on here :)



Hi Lori,

I have seen kids at four, but I am sure they start earlier. Maybe you want to check with your pediatrician about natural supplements? Melatonin and omega 3? Just a suggestion. Good luck and God bless you!
