I was wondering if anyone had children who were recieving theophyllin as part of their daily treatment.
Holly (my little girl) has recieved iv aminophyllin in hospital in the past but has never taken the daily form. After a dreadful few weeks with her asthma, her cons decided today that this would be the next course of action in relation to her treatment plan.
We've been given a 2 week course of pred and to go back for a review after this but her cons decided if this doesn't work then this is the road we really need to go down.
I think I've been doing too much research on asthma over the years because as I understand it, the side effects can be quite distressing with this type of medication and when discussing it with the cons today he said that theres a one in three chance that she will suffer some sort of side effect.
Does anyone have children who are recieving a daily form of this medication and if so, could you share your experiences please. I understand that all children react differently but maybe if I heard some positive stories it may ease my mind a bit about trying this.
