Your child is most probably suffering from asthma
, that`s why your doctor has prescribed formonide 100. I`m sure with this medicine your child must be improving. Your worry about getting addicted to it is baseless. Once complete control on his symptoms is acheived, the inhaler can be tapered off. Yes it contains steroids
but in very minute quantity and since the medicine goes directly to the lungs very little of it enters the blood and thus hardly any side effects. You need`nt worry about diabetes
as this is also very rare with inhaled medicine. Infact if his symptoms are well controlled, his lung capacity will improve and not decrease.
