Discussions that mention albuterol

General Health board

I'm real new here (this is my first post), but because I am going through something similar with my teenage daughter, I wanted to post a reply to you.

If I were you, I'd go see a pulmonologist. My 16 year old daughter developed a chronic cough over a month ago, and nothing was helping ... she was on prednisone, albuterol inhaler, antibiotics, pulmicort inhaler, vicotuss ... you name it, she was on it. Her PCP finally sent her to a pulmonologist, who diagnosed her with, of all things, whooping cough! X-rays will show clear with whooping cough.

I found a great site on whooping cough ... you might want to check it out, there's lots of great info there.


Good luck!
