Seretide, Deselex, Singulair and nasonex
My boy is 2yrs old and since he was 1yr he has been on seretide, singulair, deselex and nasonex. He was given augmentin early December for green mucus. He took the antibiotic for three days only because I couldn’ t get it down his throat. End of December the mucus stopped and there’ s no wheezing or coughing. I would like to know if I should continue with all his medication or should I stop.

He has lost a bit of weight since I stopped giving him milk early last month because he was weighing 22kg.

In any case he seems to be better now and with his recent weight loss should be much healthier.There does not seem to be a good reason to keep him on these medicines which includes 2 with cortisone [Seretide and Nasonex]
