I have been recently visiting my doctors with my daughter sarah who is eight due to her asthma being uncontrolled. Sarah is on flixotide, salmeterol and salbutamol. She is needing her salbutamol quite a lot (up to 5 or 6 times a day) her peak flow is also low and my friend mentioned to me that she does not seem to be able to blow very hard on her spacer to get her medication to her lungs properly.
Sarah's peak flows are also constantly low. She cannot get above 200 no matter how she tries. She is going back to the doctors tonight and he mentioned about putting her on a tablet. Really need some advice and am unsure what to tell school how bad her asthma is.
She gets very breathless and is also constantly coughing at night and when i give her salbutamol she settles down but this happens all night so neither of us are getting any sleep.
Sorry for all the moaning on this first visit to the site.
Hope someone can help me.
