Well Maddie is 2 and a half. She is on so many meds, including maintenance pred 3mg daily and pulmicort 2mg daily. As well as montelukast, serevent, atrovent, omeprazole, ventolin, ceterizine.
Anyway she's always been a little chunk! Cuddly shall we say! She was put on maintenance pred about 8 weeks ago and since then her asthma symptoms have improved loads thankfully (although has still needed a short course on top) but she has the side effects that come with pred!
She was weighed at the time and was 14.45kg. I weighed her today and it's dropped to 13.68kg! I'd say that's quite a bit in such a little girl? That's about 30 ounces isn't it?! in just 8 weeks!
Is this normal on pred? I thought weight GAIN was the issue not weight LOSS??!!
