    I can't speak for anyone else but it took about two weeks to notice any change in DD. There are a few odd weeks where I have to increase her dosage if she starts coughing again. However she is very good at taking her inhaler.

    I have asthma myself which mainly shows as coughing, there is some direct help but it can take weeks. The drug which has been most magic to me is singulair, it's more commonly used in kids the adults. Tablet once per day, so easy and I've needed so much less other drugs since on it, just some puffers or pred in winter with colds.... Before it I was a mess often....

    I've found the reliever (eg. Ventolin) generally works straight away, although if DS is unwell we need to use it regularly (6 puffs, 4 breaths In-between every 3hrs). His preventative puffer (flixotide) we use twice daily - this doesn't stop him wheezing but it acts long term to reduce inflammation causing the wheezing.

    Ds who's nearly 2yrs had croup/bronchitis a few weeks ago and was on prednisolone and ventolin as he was wheezing.
    It worked well. A few weeks later he still has the annoying cough, we have his humidifier on at night and use fess up his nose before bed. It helps.
