PulmicortHolden started choking on his bottles again and sounds very rough. I had to take him in today and we are starting Pulmicort today for 6 weeks. What is the difference b/w that and Zoponex (?). That is what he took last time. Also I thought this stuff was suppose to get better. While Holden's vomiting has turned to more silent reflux, his aspiration issues are getting worse. we do have a pulmo but he's a couple hours away so our pedi deals with most of this stuff.

Zack born 09/28/07 @ 31 weeks. Dx silent reflux @ 6 mo. Now not so silent. Switched to Elecare @ 9 mo. On Prevacid 15mg 1x daily. Looking to stop the puke and gain some lbs.
Puke stopped about 24 months and he's learning to eat...very slowly.
Still on prevacid and periactin.
|pulmicort is a steroid and Xoponex is a bronchiodialator. The steroid reduces inflammation in the lungs and the brohchiodialator opens up the airways...together it's easier to breathe. We used pulmicort and albuterol for about 8 months...we still do if Z gets an upper respiratory thing... GOOD LUCK|

Mom to Charlie - cleft palate and reflux. Meds - zantac, prevacid, mylanta and reglan.
|We used pulmicort after Charlie got 'viral-induced' asthma symptoms when he was sick in the winter. It was more of a preventive measure once he got over the worst of the symptoms with a more potent steroid. I stopped it when the weather got better and there was no noticeable difference.|
