Discussions that mention pulmicort

Children's Health board

My 4 year old has been on a Singulair Zyrtec combination since she was 2. We use it year round. What you describe sounds more like cough varient asthma. These kids don't present with the typical wheezing but have sometimes violent bouts of coughing. We also do Pulmicort neb treatments nightly.

She has not had any side effects that I have noticed. It works great for us and has cut down on the number of attacks she has had. We still do neb treatments as the spacers have never worked for her. It is too hard for her to figure out how to breathe with them. The neb treatments work very well in keeping it under control. We also use Xopenex instead of Albuterol as it doesnt have the same awful side effects. Good luck to you and I HTH
