Hi, there is some overlap of medicines prescribed by pediatrician and Ent doctor.
There are lot of steroids ,two antihistamines (cetrizine and loratidine).,two bronchodilators,etc
you organize the drugs with one doctor whom you trust.
you must keep one pediatrician permanantly and discuss with him about meds prescribed by others so that overlap can be avoided.
The drugs prescribed are OK in general!!!!good
