Is singulair effective for children

Every day at we get lots of asthma related questions. Below are some questions I thought my readers at the RT Cave would enjoy.

Your Question: Shall i give singular to my son 2 years an 8 months to prevent asthma or is flexotide is enough for him ?

My humble answer: The best way to determine what works for any person is by trial and error. You'll basically have to work with your child's pediatrician to determine which asthma meds are worth trying. Then you'll need to be vigilant, as your child probably won't be able to tell you if the medicine is working. If you trial a medicine for a while and it appears to be working "so-so" then the doctor may recommend another medicine in conjunction with it, or he may want your child to try another medicine altogether. Once you find a medicine regime that works, you'll want to stick with it. While medicine is based on science, it's actually an art. You basically keep painting until you generate the scenerio you like best, or medicine regime that works best for the patient. Good luck.
