... given beclometasone and advised to start taking it now as she is allergic to tree pollen. I started her 2 weeks ago, and feel that it has made her asthma a lot worse. Is this possible, and should I stop giving her the dosage straight away?
No, the beclomethasone will not make her asthma worse. It works as a "preventer" and may take a week or two before you start to notice any improvement in her symptoms. It would be unwise to stop.
To relieve her symptoms has she got a "reliever" inhaler such as Ventolin or albuterol? An antihistamine tablet may also help eg. cetirizine.
