Comment:
My 15-year old son just started this treatment. He is already showing signs of lip and nose dryness. He is showing some signs of fatigue/irritability and muscle soreness (he does have a weight lifting gym class). I am terrified of the potential side effects that are listed as many can happen during teen years in general. Would love to hear more about other teens' experiences.
