Hi,
Thanks for posting the query on XXXXXXX
After going through your query, I would like to comment the following:

1. The medicines for asthma depend on the staging and severity of disease.

2. The medications for asthma mentioned by you are an oral bronchodilator, proton pump inhibitor and an inhaled maintenance medication.

3. The most important investigation in asthma is pulmonary function test or PFT. If your PFT was done and the medications are based on the pft findings then it's alright or else a PFT and further evaluation & management by a Pulmonologist is required.

4. Also you need to keep a short actinf reliever medication like asthalin inhaler which can be taken as and when required on symptoms of breathlessness.

5. Avoidance of potential triggers is important. Also flu and pneumococcal vaccination would help prevent respiratory infections.

I hope I have answered your query. I will be glad to answer follow up queries if any.
Please accept my answer if you have no follow up queries.

My 3 year old daughter has a persistent cough which is keeping her awake at night. During the day we have sprayed with a saline nasal spray which seems to be loosening the mucus and allowing it to be discharged through the nose when sneezing. We do have a neublizer at home and Duolin for our 5 year old son. Would it be appropriate to give this to her? If not what can we do to make it easier for her to have a peaceful sleep? We have had her at the Dr twice in the last 2 weeks. First time she had a viral infection and had a course of anti-biotics. Second time she was running a high temperature and the Dr said that she had full blown flu, prescribed rinex and pain medication. Has started vomiting and dirohea since.
