Hope wou are all well
My little girl (just tured 7) seen the cons the other day and he changed her from budesonide nebules to clenil modulite 400mcg bd.
Picked up the prescription today and she's been prescribed 200mcg to take two puffs twice a day. I read the accompanying leaflet and it clearly says in big bold writing that the 200mcg dose is not suitable for children but the 100 mcg is.
I phoned the chemist as docs is closed now but they said that the surgery wouldn't prescribe 100mcg inhalers as it wouldn't be cost effective given that she'd need to take 4 puffs.
I know that the 400mcg is within acceptable limits for children but I'm curious if anyone knows why the leaflet is saying that the 200mcg dose is not suitable for children when the 100mcg is.
Would much appreciate any input
