My son aged 8 is on Symbicort 100/6, and Bricanyl 0.5 turbohaler as a reliever. He was moved across in July from Beclmatosome and ventolin to try to control his symptoms better.
We always found that Ventolin did not seem to relieve his asthmatic cough (his main symptom). The Bricanyl turbohaler doesn't seem to help either! My son says that he feels no better after using his inhaler, and the frequency of the coughs does not reduce.
Are there any other reliever inhalers that we could try?
My son is on a predisinole 4 day course at the moment as his symptoms are bad. I just feel awful that we seem to have to resort to pred. in order to help him.
We also give him cetrizine daily.
ANy suggestions would be grateful, that we could mention in his follow-up on Wednesday.
