my young son took this medication for quite some time, starting around 3 months old. he swelled up and retained fluid, was sick all of the time, in the hospital every 3 months and at the doctor's office at least once a month. i stopped giving it to him and now his asthma only flares up every once in a while.

Comment:
I have two children that are on this medication, I have been happy with it. It has been concerning to me that my older son has been on it since he was six months old and he has always been an active child, but He is hasn’t be able to control his weight or lose any. Now he six years old and around 106 to 110 pounds, He also is aggressive and unable to sleep or wake up in the morning.

Comment:
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.
