My 3 yr old was on flovent inhaler for a week. She became very thirsty by the 3rd day and started wetting her pants every day after being fully potty trained for months. She also developed a severe cough that required daily albuterol. Overall this medicine was not for us. We switched back to pulmicort nebs which work much better without these side effects.

Playing with other kids and most important of all eating again. if ther ... Show Full Comment
