... My oldest son uses Pulmicort as needed, though he doesn't have asthma. ... (5 replies)

... But I understand it is hard to continue with the nebulizer if your child doesn't have daily symptoms. I have to say that I totally recommend using the Pulmicort the way that my daughter was prescribed it. It has been over four months now since her last asthma attack. ... (22 replies)
... ve. I have a hard time giving her a drug every day for something that only affects her once every couple of months. My husband and I have decided to give her the pulmicort at the first sign of a cold, the way it was originally prescribed to us back in August. ... (22 replies)

... Hello! My toddler was just diagnosed yesterday with asthma. ... (5 replies)
... My daughter (23 months) has many similar problems but has only been diagnosed with asthma so far. She was on pulmicort respules twice a day but I reduced it to once a day since it seemed she was getting sick all the time (the insert does say it can reduce immune response). The pulmicort has GREATLY reduced the amount of nighttime/mealtime coughing. She also is not wheezing... (7 replies)
... Very often, babies and toddlers with severe asthma either get over it entirely or find it much less severe as they grow up. In fact, using medicines like Pulmicort to treat it may reduce his risk of lung problems in the long term. ... (15 replies)
... Hi Littleheart! My daughter is also in the same situation as your daughter. She just turned 2 two weeks ago and spent her birthday at the hospital. She has had 2 asthma attacks within 2 months and I'm very nervous everytime she gets a cold. She's on pulmicort daily and she's been good since (knock on wood). It's been 4 years since your first post and I would like to know your... (15 replies)
... I believe a nebulizer is considered the best treatment for toddlers, mostly because they are too young to properly use inhalers. I would look into pulmicort respules, probably twice a day. Also, I noticed he is on prevacid. ... (7 replies)
... my 2yr old daughter has been on pulmicort since she was about 10m old. She also has albuterol as a rescue treatment when she gets really bad. She's on it 2x a day as well and so far she seems fine. ... (5 replies)
... I go on Pulmicort Respules once in awhile, no problem with them and they work well. ... (5 replies)
... Thanks everyone for answering my questions. I was a bit worried maybe I wasn't doing the nebulizer right. Saw our ped today and he wants my daughter to keep using Singulair for one month (gave me one month samples worth). He also prescribed Pulmicort, but I don't think we can afford to get it since my husband's insurance hasn't kicked in yet. Sure wish we had insurance... (15 replies)
... My 2 year old daughter was recently diagnosed with asthma. I had been noticing that whenever she gets a cold she always gets to a point where her heart rate goes fast and breathes rapidly. The last three attacks she had she vomitted as well, and in the last one she was so bad she could barely speak and was sleeping/lethargic all day. I know now that colds trigger her... (15 replies)
... Do you see any problems with the long term use of those above medincines. It is just a shame to have a child on so much, but we have spoken with the specialists, and it looks like we are going to be on the same plan. As for the allergies we are hoping to have him tested again. and will be doing the same things. Thanks for your help. (10 replies)
... I would really recommend getting an Asthma plan through your Dr, and it has helped so much. We do Singulair and Zyrtec every night regardless of symptoms. We do Pulmicort twice a day regardless of symptoms. If there are symptoms, which a runny nose is a symptom in this house, we start the Xopenex. ... (10 replies)
... How did you think your son would go using a spacer with mask? I ask b/c I know in America you have Flovent (Flixotide where I am from) and Flovent is a stronger inhaled steroid than Pulmicort. Ask your Dr about it and tell him/her your concerns. It must be very frustrating and I hope you are able to find the right combo of meds for your son soon. Take care, dolphins. ... (10 replies)
... they say that most of the time when asthma develops at such a young age, they will outgrow it for good..if thats any comfort to you. At 2 1/2, their lungs are still growing, they may just take a while to catch up with the rest of the body. I find it hard to believe there are no allergies..I am full believer that allergy is ALWAYS the cause of such things. But that's just... (10 replies)
