Hi all. My 8 yo dd was just diagnosed with asthma. The doc prescribed 5 mg singulair and 10 mg zyrtec nightly and Flovent 1 puff in the am and 1 puff in the pm. I am so uncomfortable giving her all these meds (especially the flovent -- a steroid). Anyone have any advice?
Thanks,
Violet

Hi Katia -- thank you so much for your thorough response. I really appreciate your suggestion of seeing a homeopathic doctor -- I understand they're best for chronic conditions like this. I'm assuming the aggressive treatment is because my daughter has a history of allergies. What I'm most concerned about is also her psychological state -- the diagnosis of asthma really seems to scare her.
