Clenil 4 x 100mg twice a day for 5 yr old?

My son is 5, has had asthma or been treated for symptoms for it since 9mths and been on clenil from about a year.

He is really struggling had his clenil upped tp 2 x 10o, twice a day a week ago but still awful. GP today said to up to 4 puff of 100 twice a day, so exceeding the recommended maximum dose. This is for a week only, in lieu of prednisilone (sp?)

Does that sound right? Was going to call the helpline tomorrow but just wondered if anyone else had this?

My son at 2.5 years old was on 3 puffs twice a day on the advice of his consultant. I wouldn't have thought increasing it for a week would be as effective as pred as surely clenil works by building up?

Did you call the helpline today?
