My son Leo, as some of you will know, has a rough time of it with asthma attacks and is on Seretide 125 in the mornings, Seretide 50 in the evenings, prednisolone more often than not and of course salbutamol (no longer on Singulair as this is more for allergic asthma and his triggers are viral and weather induced).
His consultant said that he would prescribe him .atrovent too if he had another attack before his next appointment in March, which he has had so I know he will be given this.
He has had Atrovent once in hospital when he didn't respond to three back to back nebulisers during his last admission and it did seem to bring him back from the edge, so i know it helped in that instance. But just wondered if anyone else's child takes it and is it for daily use or just for a reliever?
I know it is important to get him more stable and I'm sure the consultant will talk us through it carefully but any experiences on here would be gratefully received.
Leo is a slow grower, partly down to genetics and partly down to the steroids now and is only on the 9th percentile for height and weight so we really have to consider all medication carefully. Does anyone else have a child who is small due to asthma related issues?
Thanks in advance!
