Atrovent was finally given to me for my 15 month old who has severe asthma. The Dr. was worried about the side effect of a mucoss plug forming in her air-way. I asked what's the diff if you give her a treatment then send us home 10mins later or give it to me and save me the er visit...She agreed and I think it works great.
