What medications has your child's doctor prescribed? Has it managed your child's asthma?

Abuterol + Pulmicort 2-4 times a day. It manages them pretty well, we can't use anything else cause of her age and allergies

Zyrtec for allergies since her asthma seems to be related to that
Albuterol
Pulmicort

ETA: forgot to add if it manages her asthma - the zyrtec works most of the time. We occasionally use the albuterol and the pulmicort and they seem to work well most of the time....of course there are times like this week where it seems so bad and nothing is helping. The nights are especially bad.

Zyrtec for allergies
Singulair
Flovent (during bad allergy days, 1-2 puffs 1-3 times/day)
Albuterol inhaler as needed (or via nebulizer)

Since we got his adenoids out (very large and infected), we've been able to manage with the Zyrtec and Singulair. Bad days we add the Flovent and occasionally the Albuterol.

xopenex 3x by nebulizer
Pulmicort 3x by nebulizer

he doesn't have to take xopenex if he doesn't cough 24 hours. I don't know how well it is working because right now he's sick.
