I think the dr is going to be switching Frederick's medicines; his pulmicort and albuterol. He's gotten very very aggressive and way more hyper to the point of hitting his friends/teacher/me/etc and he can't sit down.

He was in time-out all day yesterday. I feel awful about this. Are there other choices for controlling his asthma instead of pulmicort or albuterol??

We control Jeremys with Singular and only use the albuterol when needed. I have heard that the Albuterol can make them more hyper. I hope they can find a solution that works for him.

Xopenex is pretty much the same as albuterol without the behavioral side-effects. You can use pulm and Xop together but not albuterol and Xop together type of thing. It has worked wonders for Danny...

I think it's doing better for Frederick. Luckily we got good insurance or it'd be 893.00 for 1 box... wow
