Noah started Periactin on Thursday in an effort to increase his appetite and motivate him to eat. It appears thus far that it has the additional effects of keeping him from coughing, being congested, or vomiting. He took Periactin on Thursday and Friday with no vomit (two days in a row is a record!). We didn't give him any on Saturday or Sunday and he vomited both days, along with early Monday morning. Then we again started Periactin and no more vomit Monday or today (yes, that's right - almost 4 out of the last 6 days without any vomit). If this trend continues it could mean amazing things in terms of Noah feeling safe and comfortable around food, not to mention a huge decrease in laundry. Too bad he can't take it on the weekends.
