Q.

flexotide and asthavent

my daughter has been on these 2 pumps for a while now and she takes one puff twice a day - usually i give drop the asthavent - i give her that once a while if necessary - how long does she have to be on these pumps - should i take her back to the paediatrician for another check up - is there any special tests to be done?

Paediatrician

I presume that your daughter has been diagnosed as having asthma. She requires regular follow up for this condition, at least once every 6 months. She should use the Flixotide twice daily and she only needs to use the Asthavent if she coughs or starts to wheeze.
