My ten year old dd saw the doctor today for a chest infection. We have the usual Amoxicillin to take but he also said to take her Seretide 50 inhaler up to three puffs twice a day instead of her usual 2 puffs twice a day (via spacer). The leaflet in the pack doesn't mention 3 puffs even in a fully grown adult! I can see there being some benefit in giving her regular ventolin (before her regular Seretide dose and every four hours through the day) but I'm loathe to give more Seretide than the leaflet states.
Has anyone else given/been recommended that large a dose to their child? Would it be concidered safe??
Many thanks in advance
Jacqui (having a rough run of it of late)
