He was diagnosed a month ago. Now he is having wheezing again due to Bronchitis so his doctor put him on a 3 day dose of Steroids (his 2nd time in 2 months) so he has a follow up appt. in a few days to discuss possible medications. Is singulair worth a shot? Thanks for reading.
Singulair is a good medicine to try-much better than using steroids. Singulair may help to control him on a regular basis so that he doesnt have bad episodes and can stay off the steroids. It is not a rescue drug or to be used for an acute episode, it is more a long term drug to keep asthma under better control. He will still need a rescue inhaler for bad episodes.
