I would be grateful for any advice from parents as at the moment I am close to breaking point. My 3 year old son had viral induced asthma last winter and was given steroid tablets short term with blue and brown inhalers, his behavoir became so bad with mood swings, hyperactivity and tiredness that I ended up being overwhelmed and depressed. His asthma began again in September and he is on the 100mg preventer 2 puffs twice a day and his blue inhaler 2 puffs three times a day with more in between as his wheeze and cough is still quite bad. We saw the asthma nurse for a review appointement yesterday and was told that the brown inhaler is not working and he will need to see a doctor to get someting else - the doctor that we need to see is not available till the 27th November! In the meantime I have a grumpy, tired, asthmatic three year old with mood swings and hyperactivity as well as a one year old daughter and I am tearing my hair out!
