I spoke with her PCP and she told me to up her dose of QVar to twice a day. If that doesn't help her, she wants to see her on friday to listen to her lungs, and probably put her on oral steroids. Anyone's kiddo taking them? Thoughts?

The only thing Jeremy takes is singular once a day. We have never had to do steroids. If my dr suggested it I would want to know why and how they would help my child to be better ikwim. I hope the extra dose of Qvar works and you don't have to do the steroids. Let us know how she is feeling.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my great siggie

Danny has had to be on SEVERAL rounds of oral steroids when breathing treatments just weren't enough. They help the inflamation and somehow stopped his spasmic coughing fits. He would be coughing so hard and for so long that he would start choking. He is only three but he has finally starting taking Advair which has been a miracle for him. We were doing Xopenex every 3 hours and pulmicort every 8 around the clock and he had still needed 4 rounds of oral steroids in two months. They REALLY helped though. They moved him to the inhaler because his allergist didn't want him to be dependant on steroids to breathe, but they definitely were a life saver dozens of times over the last three years.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my GREAT siggy.
