Common Questions and Answers about Difference between flovent and pulmicort

flovent

so far ive been told my 5 yr old is too young for tests, so now hes a guinea pig. is there a difference between RAD and asthma? is there a way to tell the difference between asthma and pneumonia? the np said you cant. will inhalers actually keep him from contractin viral infections? (colds,pneumonia?) the promblem im having is that my son doesnt have a problem with exercise and running around. thinking it might be the dog.
I have been prescribed Xoponex HFA and Flovent but I am afraid to take them because of the side effects that I experienced last time. I have seen two doctors so far but I am not getting any better. Do you think that I should see another doctor? Could I have asthma even though my testing has been inconclusive? Are there any alternatives to the medications I have been prescribed that have milder side effects?
She is 11 now and has had problems since she was about 18months. She takes allegra, singulair, flonase, flovent and foradil everyday as a preventative. Then the pulminologist told us to give her albuterol before sports practices and games. About once a year, she seems to have an attack where she has to take multiple neb treatments or go to the ER. She is very active in sports.
Her asthma started at 6 months old. She takes flovent twice daily and albeuterol as needed. She was tested for allergies and doesn't have any. Her coughing lasted for so long that her asthma doctor (who is an allergist) finally looked at the mucous from her nose in a microscope and said that she had an infection. She was prescribed antibiotics for 3 weeks due to the long amount of time she had the infection and that cleared it.
It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
