I took her to the doctor who prescribed her Salbutamol cough syrup 3.5 mg 3 times a day saying that she has wheezing. Is it safe? It is not releiving the cough at all, already tried for one and half day. It is about the same.
As per doctor's advice I am taking Roxythromycin tablet with benadril cough syrup for the past 10 days.But I couldn't find any improvement.Still I am continuin the dosage. Is it a symptom of Asthma or wheezing? If so, whom I have to consult and what medication I need to take? Kindly advice me in this regard.
After this from August 2006 almost every month he has to take cough expectorant with salbutamol due to dry cough. In december 2006 the cough did not improve with the cough syrup and he developed low grade fever. Again in Mid january 2007 X ray was taken it showed a similar patch as seen in May 2006. He was now treated with Azythromycin. and 4 hourly salbutamol nebulization,he is on budecort steroid 200mg twice daily since january 26, 2007.
He gave me antiobitocs, mucinex, allergy meds (As a precaution, he thought it may have been caused by this but I doubt it, never had an allergy in my life), cough syrup and an inhaler. Now this inhaler is a Qvar,40 mcg of beclomethasone. It says take it twice a day. This was prescribed for what I assume to be my shortness of breathe that I was having very very often. I start to experience shortness of breathe about every 4-5 hours after a puff of it.
], but i do still have symptoms, although really mild, if i don't take any Salbutamol. i still don't feel that my asthma is completely in control. basically, i know i have two options at my next appointment--increase my floVent, or if dr. s thinks it's a good idea, add singulair. even though i may have side effects from singulair for awhile, i'm thinking it may be a better bet than increasing my ICS dose--my dad has glaucoma, and ICS's have an increased risk of developing glaucoma.
I brought him again to another doctor and they gave him guaiafenesin + salbutamol syrup with a dose of 5ml 3x a day. still the cough persisted and then another doctor changed his meds to augmentin 288 with a dose of 5ml twice a day and carbocistine 5ml 3x a day.. after 1 week, the cough only stopped for about 4 days and again started ... i am desperate already. what would be the diagnosis.. what will i give him? thank you.
I really need the name of the meds, but in theroy... the Orange one could be Flovent is an inhaled steroid that takes down inflammation, it is NOT a rescue inhaler. This is usually given one in the morning and one at night, every 12 hours, it works for 12 full hours. BLUE inhalers are the ones that open your airway within 5minutes, they are the rescue inhalers.
She has been diagnosed with a post nasal drip problem in the past which I have to give her cough medicine consisting of Promethazine w/codeine syrup. That is the only thing that helps her. My younger son has been diagnosed w/asthma so maybe there's some connection there. Sci_teacher, did your symptoms start before or after you were diagnsed w/asthma? I am taking my daughter to the pediatricin Nov. 21st and will write when I return, hopefully with some sort of answer.
