    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.

    This is the 3rd time in a year that my 4 1/2 year old son has been on this. Although I am happy with the job it does, I DO NOT LIKE the really negative side effects it gives him: excessive sweating (his head is soaked within 1 hour of him taking a very low dose (15 mg), very rapid heart rate, and this is the 2nd time he has had cramping and tingling in his fingers (both hands, all different fing ...

    My son is 3.5 and has increasing trouble with asthma. His doctors don't like to give him this medication because of potential side effects although I haven't experienced any as of yet except for a little hyperactivity the first and second day.

    My 2 1/2 yr old had symptoms of croup and our 1st time using this (last night) we were supposed to give him 2 doses..He turned into the tazmanian devil...very destructive (even more than normal). But aside from that, the "barkiness" is gone and so far, it's just regular coughing

    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.
