What asthma meds does your chlid take? We're trying to find a combination that actually works!

Our son has had respiratory issues since he was 9 months old. We have been fighting to find the right combination of medicines that will keep his asthma under control. Would love to know what works for your asthmatic child!

  • My grnadson takes Singulair every night, Flovent inhaler twice a day, Nasones nasal spray, zrytec each night. his allergies profoundly affect his asthma flare ups. He also has a nebulizer to use as needed as well as a rescue inhaler-Xopenex. The Flovent and singulair seem to have made a tremendous difference.

  • Whatever you try, it will work better if you eliminate dairy and all artificial chemicals from your child's diet
