My 9 yr old daughter has been taking this for 4 days now. The cough has somewhat decreased but the side effects were not worth the medication. She's had upset stomach, restlessness, stabbing feelings in her chest, legs and arms, & dizziness. Would not use again.

My son's tonsils swelled up when he had Strep but the tonsils did not shrink back down once he was better. It cause a quiet non-snoring 4yr old to turn into a rival of a buzz saw. ENT prescribed the steroid to help the tonsils shrink down and we crossed our fingers that would be enough help for the body. He wont take liquid, but the dissolving form he could chew was a great help. It started working the very first night. Helped him breathe better (he was gasping and choking for breathe while asleep and had Long pauses in his breathing that all started up around the same time he was Dx with Strep), I did not notice him hyper, or out of sorts. He was able to sleep and went back to the happy little one he always is when waking up. It got old for him to take the medicine after two weeks. We tried no medicine to see if his body could adjust and he would not need surgery for the large tonsils, but that was not the case. Tonsils and adenoids are on the chopping block.

My son (7years old) was given this med for his asthma -15mg tables. His side effect was tingling in his fingers and hyperactivity. It worked but I’m not sure how I feel about giving him a steroid.

My 5 year old granddaughter, after taking this medication, has become a very beligerant child and has sessions of thinking that everyone hates her and she goes into a panic mode and starts hitting and kicking everyone and thing around. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes for her to calm down and be her sweet self again. There must be something in the drug that is affecting her thought process. Her mother is going to talk with Dr Monday and see if there is another med that will help without these outrages.

15 mg tablet given to 4 yr old once a day for 2 days. 30 minutes after taking the first dose of medicine major hyperactivity and restlessness. 10 hours after first dose complained that ants were crawling all over body and cannot sleep. Medicine took care of the croupy cough though. Not sure we will give 2nd dose or use again!!
