Discussions that mention pulmicort

Children's Health board


My son is only 3 1/2 yrs. Before he started on meds he coughed and couged and coughed so hard he would wake up in the middle of the night, or throw up, phlemmy stuff. He had been on zyrtec for allergies - they added singulair once a day and it really made a difference. Then...every now and then he gets the cough back and he can't kick it, doesn't happen often, but then his allergist puts him on a nebeulizer for 2 weeks, using pulmicort and alburetol. He might be able to now use an inhaler, but I don't know if he could have a year or so ago??? He is now able to use the mouth piece instead of the mask for his nebeulizer, but it really hasn't come up that we need it. The neb. kicks his cough for a good month or so...
