What Is Pediatric Asthma Treatment, Is It Really That Dangerous?

Aug 17, 2007
What do you think if our children are to pay for 20 years from now after the full side effects of asthma drugs are known?

Curing pediatric asthma with time bombs.

When you discover that your child is suffering from asthma your doctor will undoubtedly reach for the prescription book.

If he is a particularly good doctor he might hand you a couple of leaflets on how best to cope during your child's asthma attack. What he probably won't do is mention the possible side effects of all the drugs your child is going to start taking. And taking.

Do you really want your kids to have go through this day after day? Isn't there a better way? There is. Pediatric asthma does not have to begin and end with drugs.

Drugs which could cause more harm in the longer term than good.

Let's start with what young junior is going to have to take. He'll probably have two inhalers. One called a 'reliever' and another called a 'preventer'.

In the reliever you'll find usually one or several types of Bronchodilator. These types of drug work to increase the diameter of the airways.

Don't you just love natural remedies? Ok, ready for the bad news?

Here are some of the possible side effects: nausea, actual vomiting, feeling restless and nervous, and finding it impossible to sleep.

Depending on the Bronchodilator that your child takes, they could also suffer from headaches, irregular heat beats, diarrhea, depression and leg cramps.

The preventers don't have those problems. They are normally made up of Corticosteroids. Which are worse.

Corticosteroids are anti-inflammatory drugs and people have died while switching from oral medication to inhaled medication.

Other things to watch out for are mood swings (just what you need in a teenager), coughing, weight gain, muscle weakness, cataracts and osteoporosis. The options available in pediatric asthma are few and far between but they do exist.

Would you like to take care of your kid's asthma without drugs?

Many people did it to blindly submit to the whims (and down-right boredom) of several doctors. Then many came across a new form of not just living with asthma but beating it too.

Many people are now taking advantage of a drug-free method, especially children, who don't have the bodies developed enough to cater for all these drugs.

Pediatric asthma need not be one drug after the next and hoping for the best. Doctors may say that the drugs are safe, but have they done twenty years of tests on them?

Do they know what effects these drugs will have on our children's children? Do you want to take the risk, however small?
