6 mo w/ Asthma- Too many meds??? Help!!!
My son has recently been diagnosed with asthma after a chest X-ray. He has had some night time coughing which has slowed up. To tell you the truth, I don't know if he was fighting a cold also. Anyways, my ped has him on Nasonex, Singulair, and Pulmicort. This seems like a lot of meds for a 6 month old. Since his symptoms are very mild, I think I should take him off at least two of the meds. My ped pretty much said I'll see you at his 9 month checkup and stick with the 3 meds. I am totally new to the world of asthma. I need some advice on which direction I need to go with this. I really don't know how severe it is. I was thinking about going to a pediatric allergist. I need some advice from asthma veterans. Thanks!
