Unhappy Behavior issues and albuterol neb treatments.

I have a 4 year old son and we have had issues every winter for 4 yrs. with repeated respitory infections. Basically he is sick from September until April. I have repeated reminded his doctors that his two half-brothers have both been diagnosed with asthma and allergies. On top of the breathing problems for the past two winters we have dealt with severe behavior issues as well. I have taken him and had him tested but they told me he was too smart and just got bored.

This morning as I was dealing with hour three of tantrum I realized that his behaviors have not been like this since March. March was the last time he was sick like this and put on albuterol neb treatments. In March he was also on liquid steroids and amoxicillin. This time he is on the albuterol and Augmentin. So the behavior either has to do with whatever is making him sick or the meds they are using to treat him. His doctor is finally sending him for allergy and asthma testing but the specialist can't see him until January. I do not want to spend the next two months battling with my son. I am a single mother so it's night like we can even really get a break from each other when he starts to act like this.

I am desperate and asking for any and all advice you have to give.
