      Can you please use ‘Ask a question’ link on top of this page for your question…thanks?

    • Dear Lokesh,
      Your mother is taking Tablet Dexona for last one year, it contains steroid. Oral steroids are harmful if taken for long duration, so kindly switch to inhaled preparation after consulting your treating doctor.

  2. Dr diagnosis asthama to my son coz of 3 severe attacks of breathing within one n half month but before attacks he usually have cold.Now Dr is giving him budecort respules 0.5mg and asthalin respules 2.5ml through nebulizer and Dr says when he will cure,he will start his 1year treatment with budecortpuf 100 n asthalinpuf 3 times for 30 secs through pufkit.My son is 19 month old.My qustion is he really has asthama and any side-effects of these medicines.

    • Dear Namita,
      At the age of 19 months, making a diagnosis of asthma is difficult. For this respiratory condition you should continue the treatment under supervision of your doctor. Keep a continuous eye on problem as he/she grow up.

    • Dear Surendra,
      Your history suggested that you are suffering from severe asthma. Ventorlin is inadequate to control it. You should be on controller medicines of asthma. The type and dosing of controller medicines should be reviewed by your treating chest physician.

    • Dear Deepak,
      Asthma can menifest in different forms. Probably your wife’s asthma was triggered by paint. Once triggered, its tendency could persist for a long period. Hence inhaled steroid should be taken for long duration. Please consult a chest physician regularly.
