my son is 4 and has been on medication for asthma since he was 6 months old.
he currently has salbutamol, becotide 100mg 2 puffs twice a day and singulair 4mg granules at night.
however since april he has had a persistent cough which was first triggered by a cold. but since then its just not shifted the pollen makes him terribly.
hes triggers are colds or infections, change in weather, excersise and more recently pollen although he was tested for pollen allergy last year and was negative.
the singulair did make a slight diff however hes gone bk to how he was b4 the singulair was introuduced, he dont stop coughing, and is realy breathless the weather constantly chaning is making him so much worse.
i was going to ask the gp is they will change the granules to the chewable tablets to see if it makes a diff to his symtons and hes also is now realising we r mixing it in his food.
has anyone gone from granules to the tablet and found a better difference to there child asthma?
was also going to ask if they could change his steroid inahler as hes been on it 3 1/2 years and i dont feel its ever done much.
hes last chest xray showed hyperinflated lungs which we was told is a sign of poorly controlled asthma but no follow up has been done
sorry its so long
