    Ooh a win! I now have a prescription for a preventative puffer during winter! Poor DS is sick with a flu and his asthma is pretty bad poor little darling

    But hopefully it helps!

    This of you who already have children using preventatives do you think they work and make a difference? X

    Yes absolutely. Be consistent and you should notice an improvement. Also I keep ds in and fix up any flu . What preventer is it?

    Absolutely made a difference. Once it was regular, if ds got sick, he sometimes needed ventolin, but rarely needed much, and the sickness was shorter as his asthma didn't flare up. We never got to the stage that we thought we may need to go to hospital either. Different for everyone, but preventer definitely made a difference for us.

    Oh good I'm so glad to hear that!

    I will be off first thing to buy it, poor little mite wheezed and coughed all night long breaks my heart

    It's flixitide. 2 puffs twice a day when he's unwell, and other times 1 puff once a day. Is that the same one?

    Finding ventolin alone is doing stuff all and even redipred isn't.

    Ds has two puffs of flixotide twice a day at all times, well or unwell. And ventolin if unwell

    Bum mum- does he need it at all times of the year? DS gets bad in winter but most of summer months he's ok (similar to how I was).

    He does currently. However the doctor will review it when winter has passed. He seems to have recently built an immune system lol so hopefully it won't be forever. But his asthma was pretty bad for a while so its better to be cautious. I think the idea is to drop down to flixotide once a day first.

    My DS was on flixotide last year. He stopped at Xmas time and so far so good. I have a feeling we will be getting back on it at some stage though. He had a cold recently which was quick, but he did pump through some ventolin. All ok now though, so fx. I think he must have built up his immune system too, so his colds aren't so bad???

    I thought the same with DS, he had a cold a month ago and it wasn't Di bad. But this one is a bad one. Think it's more of a flu than anything.

    Poor little wheezing guy
