    My 2 yr old son started on this medication and within a few weeks he was hoarse and coughing more. He was seen by another specialist who said that the medication was causing polyps on his throat and vocal cords. He either needed to quit taking the medication or have surgery. After I had him off the Flovent for 1 month his voice returned normal and the polyps were almost completed gone.

    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.

    My son has been on this for the past few weeks. He is clingy, cries over the slightest thing, is getting in trouble at school now, etc. I was curious about whether the medication had something to do with it since the timing fits. I looked on this website and see that he is not the only one. I will be seeing if there is a non-steroid he can take to manage his asthma. Thanks for all who posted, ... Show Full Comment

I now have to EAT every 2.5 hours otherwise I have low blood sugar readings on the glucose monitor (below 60). IF YOUR KIDS ARE ANGRY ON THE MED just feed them every 3 hours. You will notice a big change. This drug is good for Asthma symptoms but bad for the ... Show Full Comment
