My son just moved away from home to go to school and had a bad attack and went to a different hospital than usual. He has a note from his doctor on his usual treatment but they have him on a methylprednisolone IV and then oral prednisone for a week, plus he is still using his flovent 8 puffs per day. Isnâ€™t this a bit of overkill. He usually responds quite quickly to his usual treatment of 5 days of prednisone and his flovent. I am just a bit concerned about the IV. He was released this morning but has to go back to Emergency this evening for another IV and then one tomorrow morning.
