Hey, just wanted you to know that my DD was prescribed this when she was around 2.5 or so...
She had a cough that would just not go away.
Gosh, it seems so long ago now, so I don't remember exactly. But I'm sure it took maybe a couple of days to see an improvement. Maybe even less, but definately not more than the couple days.
I remember being so freaked out thinking she was going to be athsmatic (sp?) but it was very short term. The next winter she had the lingering cough again and both times we didn't even come close to emptying the inhaler...
She hasn't needed it since.
Did you get given the chamber/tube to use as well?
Also, just wanted to add that using a cool mist humidifier in her room at night can't hurt.
Hope she gets some sleep tonight!
