My little boy has been gradually reducing his meds to see if he could hold on lower doses....but now flixotide has been put back up and it looks as if he'll be back azithromycin. He first went on azithromycin when he was 2 and has only been off it for about 4 months and we're seeing his asthma control slip badly. Tomorrow we have an urgent review with his consultant who was not very happy about his low peak flows when he was 'well' and is very unhappy about the big slip over the last month. He says that he'll prob re introduce the antibiotic because that improved him so dramatically then in Jan we'll need to start reinvestigating why it helps so much. He's on such high doses of everything we were so happy to start withdrawing and it feels so sad to be putting everything back again but he was so poorly and to see that slip start happening is just awful. Finished h is week course of pred with still a very low pf good job he's being seen tomorrow. I was so impressed that when I spoke to asthma nurse she arranged for this urgent appointment.
I feel so blur about this all because I was so excited that he was slowly withdrawing all his high dose support. Sorry about the waffle.
