Re: Has anyone given up inhaled steroids & used Intal & ended up better?

I have been an asthmatic all my life and do not experience any symptoms of depression from inhaled steroids. In my opinion it isn't the steroids that is causing your son's depression. I would seriously look at his diet. There are many hidden side effects in processed food. Did his diet change throughout his teens? Teenagers tend to eat a lot of fast food - hamburgers and such.

There is a lot of information on the web regarding processed foods - refined sugers, white flour, trans fats, etc. Read up on it and talk with your son about changing his diet - give it two weeks.
Good Luck.
