Not quite sure wether i need re-assurance or whatever but i need some input from others please.
My daughter Chloe is 11, for the last 4 years she has happily being plodding along with the pulmicort and ventolin when needed as well as hayfever meds from march- sept.
Early last yr things went downhill and the pulmicort was increased and serevent added. Yet again things have deteriorated and she is now taking 400mcg becotide twice a day as well as the serevent and has just been prescribed her second lot of pred in 6 weeks after only havnmg it once in the last 5 yrs. Her peak flows range from 130-320(the latter being above norm for her height/age) I am allowed to decrease her meds i fi feel she is stable and i do this as needed.
Chloe doesnt have attacks but is very much cough variant and also doesnt wheeze, we know she is nut, dust fur and pollen allergic and so treated as such.
I am very much aware that in asthma terms Chloe is not severe but nweverthe less im worried about the way things are going.
What concerns me is the increase in meds without an obvious trigger are the GPs being over cautious as they know me very well ( brittle asthmatic for 10 yrs) . The Dr seems happy to up the meds without looking into the cause of her downward slip which i find very frustrating.
What do you guys think?
Thanks for letting me vent as well?
