    I’m so glad it’s worked for you.
    I really hope it dramatically improves your DD’s asthma! I can’t imagine how terrifying it must have been for your daughter and you watching when she was so unwell 😢
    Keep us posted with how she goes?

    As an aside when it was prescribed for DD neither the Dr nor the Pharmacist even mentioned the side effects. I read it on the leaflet and made inquiries before starting her in them! From memory they were thought to be rare and there wasn’t a lot of information, there’s certainly a lot more info now.
    The pharmacist didn’t say anything and all the respiratory physician said was “it can make some kids really sad or mad”. Then I read about it and was a bit shocked.

    2 doses in and so far she is no more grumpy than her usual 4yo self.

    Did the doctor or pharmacist mention anything about taking it at night?

    Pharmacists mentioned it to us the first few times we filled the prescription - that it’s more effective at night rather than morning for asthma.

    Though we give our DD hers in the morning as our poor controlled ‘experiment’ found her better taking it in the morning (but she takes it for non-asthma reasons).

    Just thought I’d mentioned it in case it improves results.

    Yes the dr said to have it with dinner. Thanks for letting me know.

    Sorry to be a bit late to the party. But yes, my 5yo son had some scary side effects to this medication. I was only telling a friend about it the other day! It was very scary to watch him transform. The GP or Pharmacist didn’t warn me. I took my son to a Paed for help and he asked what medications my son was having, and as soon as I told him he pulled out his medicine book and showed me all the side effects. Very very scary. It took 2 weeks to get out of his system (we returned to Flixitide Jnr) and he was back to normal.

    Thanks @bluerhino, you’ve prompted me to come and update.

    Unfortunately DD1 had some pretty bad side effects, anxious, reactive, sleep disturbance. It was awful. We’ve been off for about 10 days and she has settled down really well.
