well i took ds to see the ped. today...and FINALLY after an emergancy trip last week, he is listening..even if just a little bit.
Nothing has cleared up at all since the ER visit..he just has to walk around the living room to put him into a coughing fit..when he is sleeping he is coughing and snoring and all that nice stuff.
Right up til today he was on 50mg of flovent 3puffs/twice a day..so that is 150mg/s twice a day ..the dr didnt think that was good...he didnt like that at all..he said thats more then an adult takes usually.
So he switched him to one called qvar... im a little worried about that since i looked it up online and its for kids 5 and older and Ds is only 2 and WAY smaller then ur average 2yr old (22Ibs and 31inches) ..he fits 12month cloths still!
And on one website it says that reactions and all that stuff are unknown in children younger then 5. So that kinda scares me...but Im hoping it will help out
He also prescribed singular because of his allergies..so hopefully he will get back to somewhat normal soon!!
Danny is on Advair which isn't recommended for children under 12 and he is on the middle dose...not the lowest. He is almost 4 but weighs 30.4 pounds and is 39 inches. They have to say not recommended below a certain age if they don't do clinical trials. If he is an adult dose of the other medication I would definitely give it a try though... It can't be much worse for him if it is any worse for him...
Jeremy does singular and that helps him. Even his dr said that it would help some for allergies. Yes sometimes warning lables are so scary but the way those work is kind of wonky. If someone during the trial got the flu they have to still put could cause vomiting if that makes sense. Kind of like meds for pregnancy. Not safe for pregnancy because they haven't been tested on pregnant women. I hope the new meds help. Thanks for coming by and updating. KUP!
Wow.. you must have a really good pediatrician who knows how treat allergy/asthma very good, because my son's former pediatrician, recommended us out to Dr. Feger (the asthma specialist), and said they couldn't do anything for him since her place did not specialize in childrens asthma/allergies.
That is a bit of flovent he was on but my son has been on 44 mcg of Flovent since he was 9 months old.. I was a bit concerned it was effecting his growth.. He is tiny as well.. 29 1/2 inches at 18 months old! But he was 22 lbs.. He is just now fitting into 12 month pants at 20 months. But since he is more active now and is fighting allergies (constant cough,etc).. I doubt he has gained much.. He's barely on the charts.. Good to know I'm not alone in this.
