I worry about eye flashing, as in ligtning like times as i turn my head in a dark oo semi dark room. This does not happen often but at least tow of three tomes a day. Tho I have also started taking a sweetener and am not sure which is causing the problem or if it is a sign of something more.

This was prescribed for my daughter's asthma attacks, it works w/in minutes of using it. Sometimes she coughs a lot after taking it but as soon as the cough goes away, then it is fine. My daughter is 4 yrs old, and I do recommend it based on my experience.
