Any o e with a child on prip

Hi All,

My 9 year old son had a cardiac arrest just over 3 weeks ago and he was later diagnosed with having Long QT Syndrome. An ICD was fitted and we were advised he would need to take Propanolol for the rest of his life (praying this won't be the case)

Last week i noticed a bald patch at the back of his head. Hoping this is not down to the meds??? Going to ask the Drs if my son can either go on a low med or see if they can stop him taking it completley, as i really don't want him going through any other dreadful side affects!
