    My 2 year old daughter has been taking pulmicort through a nebulizer for 6 months now. She is really aggressive and it really hasn't kept her out of the doctors office. She still gets asthma flare ups and has to go on prednisone it seems like every month.

    My son was extremely aggressive while on this medication, and he experienced intense mood swings as well. His behavior improved immensely and his mood swings disappeared after he stopped taking it.

    I have tryed this drug several times. My breathing is immediately effected. I can feel my breathing getting worse. I visited my MD today and she told me to start using it again. I had already told her that my breathing worsened..It causes allergy problems, sleep problems, me to be very nervous, weight gain and very hungry. Facial swelling also. This is not a good drug to use.
