We have a little boy who started with what we were told was winter wheezing just over a year ago. After many chest infections & breathlessness being given prednisolone, amoxicillin and nebulizers, they finally said he was asthmatic around 6months in. He's now on brown and blue inhalers ceterezine and montelukast. His latest attack was his worst, requiring an ambulance.
We've had all the allergy tests completed - negative to our cats, housemite, pollen etc.
Im just upset and lost with the conflicting advise being given by different GPs and the hospital with inhaler dosages and how often they can be given.
He's been discharged yesterday with 8 puffs 4 hrly, but still sounds like a smoker, is breathless v.quickly and we're not making the 4hrs before topping him up with blue again.
He's also very angry, and hyper/agitated not the usual happy go lucky boy we have.
Bemused why his asthma seems so volatile and getting worse not better when he's on more and more drugs.
I know each child/person is different with their symptons Im struggling with each GP/Hospital Dr giving us conflicting advise on management.
Any advise or suggestions will be willing looked into
