Hi, Alfie saw his consultant last fri and a new drug has been added in; azithromycin - he has this 3 days a week. Apparently this is used with children with cf and she hopes that this will mean that eventually we can reduce his dependance on steroids. He's now showing signs that his adrenal gland is not functioning properly and has developed a 'suspicious' heart murmur. He is having a scan under anaesthetic to check if its ok or if its actually drug related problems. He's still wheezy and looks like paper. We have been told that if he deteoriates more that we are to take him to the ward and not A&E. Does anyone now this antibiotic - does it have behavioural side effects - he's already mad on his pred.Hope all kids are ok.Margot
