Quick question for you all, how long do you find increases in inhaler doses take to have effect?
My son was restarted on his brown inhaler a month ago, just over 3 weeks ago the dose was increased to 3 puffs twice a day and montelukast granules started. I am still having to give blue inhaler most days and dont feel it is working. Friday late afternoon/evening whilst we were on holiday in Gibraltar I was having to give 10 puffs of ventolin every 2.5 hours until he fell asleep and the breathing seemed to calm down. He had another hospital appointment today and discussed it with the registrar who says I need to give it longer. Annoyingly in some ways he seemed better than he had done for the previous 10 days. I was actually hoping they would move him onto a purple inhaler like they said they might as from my experience it has improved my asthma so much.
Any experience would be appreciated.
