I'm interested to see what inhalers other people's children take as I think my 4 year old twins may be about to get their's changed and I want to get myself informed so I know what the consultant is talking about!
Oliver is currently on flixotide 2 puffs twice a day. He also has atrovent 1 puff 3 times a day when he has a cold or virus etc plus ventolin when needed, regular to help if has cough / cold.
Harry has the same minus the atrovent.
We are havign a rough few weeks. Oliver has had a terrible chest infection requiring 2 courses anti biotics. Was admitted for 24 hours 4 weeks ago, then a&e for neb last weds. He has also had 2 courses prednisolone, 3 days first time the 5 days which finished sunday.
Harry has had a chest infection which cleared quickly but still has acough and he's now waking in the night coughing and first thing in the morning.
The asthma nurse has mention a purple inhaler, think this is a long acting one and also singulair. Does anyone have any experience of either of these and have they helped?
The boys tend to get coughs that last forever but often their chests are clear. The Gp always says its viral but i'm really not too sure that it is.
They're genereally not wheezy children, usual sypmtom is a cough, and their asthma seems to be kicked off by coughs and colds.
Thanks in advance!
