Pediatrician 's  Response

From what you say, it looks like your child has allergy.
Bricanyl is given when Hyper reactive airways are there.

For both of these (allergy/asthma) there are preventive medications available either as tablets or nasal puffs or inhalers. Please discuss this with your pediatrician.
If you feel she develops these problems only during changes of weather, you can very well use them before the season changes so that she does not get the problem again and again.

Both the medicines you are giving are for aborting the present attack. They will not prevent further attacks.
Hope you find my answer helpful.
