My little boy of 5 years old is on 200mcg (daily dose) of seretide and 5ml of cetirizine in the evening, yet we have had to use his salbutamol in the last 4-6 weeks as he is starting to get some asthma symptoms. We had a particularly rough night with lots of coughing and so I called his respiratory nurse for some advice. She has prescribed him an Atrovent inhaler to use in addition to his other inhaler. Has anyone had any experience of using it in children? And have you found it useful in lifting the phlegm?
