Does anyone's child/ren have any behavioural side effects of taking daily flixotide or delayed behavioural side effects from close courses of pred?
My 4 year old daughter is on 400mg of flixotide daily, and had a 3 and a 5 day course of pred really close together (like, within 1 week of each other) in may. Her behaviour has been awful since, she's sooooo moody, if she's told no or doesn't et her own way it's an instant meltdown, if someone isn't doing something the way she wants it done she's instantly in tears. I don't know how to deal with her. Being firm doesn't help, This has been over this past 4 or 5 weeks now, coinciding with the pred. Prior to the 2 courses of pred, she'd had a really rough time for 4 weeks, attacks nightly, colds, etc. Worst she has been so far with her asthma.
I can't help think it's all linked - or at least was linked and maybe it's now just learned behaviour that I need to break? It's so hard-going. I work as a childminder, and she's awful from 5pm onwards, tiredness does play a part at that time, but still, she's never been like this. I am mortified with her whining & moaning at times
any input would be greatly appreciated. She has a check with the asthma nurse next week to see if we need to adjust her medicine after that 4 week bout she just got over so I'll bring it up with the nurse, but you guys always have help when I need it!
