We've had him on Flovent forever, but each cold/flu virus inevitably sends us to the hospital with some respiratory complication. Insurance is switching so we have to switch to Qvar, I'm just wondering if there is a real benefit to someone who doesn't have breathing issues at all except when sick.
I could be wrong but have you considered that the reason why your son only has attacks when he has a virus is because the Flovent is working as it should - as a preventative.
If you were to stop the Flovent you may find your son has more frequent attacks.
It should not matter whether your son takes Flovent or Qvar. They both are inhaled corticosteroids and work in the same way to prevent asthma symptoms.
