After having a 3rd course of prednisolone for the 3rd month on the trot they have now put my daughter onto a brown inhaler - Clenil Modulite 100 aka beclometasone dipropionate, which is CFC free. She uses the yellow aero chamber with mask and is very good at taking her blue inhaler.
She hates take the prednisolone because of taste and was delighted when Dr gave her the brown inhaler to hopefully prevent having to have the pink things again! But I CANNOT get her to take it. have tried everything - putting vicks under her nose, putting an olbas oil tissue over her nose part, even having sugar sprinkled on her tongue etc etc but she still gets very distressed and pulls her head away. She is getting more stressed now which in turn is making her coughing and breathing worse...
I am a single mum and struggling to cope with the nights up waiting for the out of hours -doc to authorise 20 puffs of ventolin etc and then oral steroids battles then missed school - I also don't get paid when she misses school and I have to take a time of work, and I am starting to get into trouble financially....
Does anyone know of any tricks to get her to take the inhaler or to mask the taste and smell or is there alternative inhalers or ??????
Anyhelp would be appreciated before kt and I end up insane lol
