I have a 4 year daughter that i am very concerned about.......she is currently on 2 puffs of symbicort morning and evening 160/4.5 and singular 4 mg every night.....my ex-wife over the last year has said she has been seeing a lot of symptoms pale, turning blue, night coughing, gurgling malaise .......we have had 50/50 custody......i have not been seeing these symptoms ....we have been going to the doctor only at the regular scheduled appointments for the last year(no emergency visits) .....and now the doctor has written a letter to the courts stating he does not know what to do with two divorced parents with one seeing symptoms and the other one not......since he has written this letter the courts have taken my children.....that was 2 month ago....since the court has intervened we have been to the doctor 4 times and she has been administering albuterol once and twice a day 2 puffs each for those two months....her daycare has administered albuterol twice in the last year? now i am seeing a significant down turn in her health and it does not seem to be stopping......i still do not see rescue symptoms but now i am seeing.... coughing.... the doctor just keeps upping her dosages and has now prescribed orapred......she has also just taken my 6 year old daughter to the doctor today(which i believed to be for a cold) and stated to him she is seeing the same symptoms in her and he has just diagnosed her with asthma......my 6 year old has never had any problems ever? i am confused no one believes me when i tell them i have not seen any symptoms i.e. the courts and the doctor.......i do not know what to do! i need some help

Just a possibility - there may be something in your ex wife's house that is affecting your children's health whereas in your house there is not. If your ex wife has any sort of mold problem, this can make asthma symptoms worse (even if the mold in not apparent). You might want to bring this up to her just to be on the safe side.

If she's a smoker or has smoking visitors and you don't, this could be another irritant. Roaches, pets, perfumes or flowers can cause troubles, too.

Asthma can have symtoms of coughing to the point of gagging with some children.

thaks for the response.......i asked the doctor how can you have such problems at one house and not at another......his response was you don't...looking at me like i am an idiot....hence my confusion because i understand astma to be a caused by a trigger......

With asthma, there doesn't always have to be a trigger but allergens, cold air, perfumes, smoke etc can be a trigger. Sometimes attacks just happen which is why it makes asthma so unpredictable. Usually when someone suspects asthma they will either see their primary doc or a pulmonologist.

The pulmonologist does several breathing tests. One is blowing out the candles on the computer. The other tests are done sitting inside this special glass case breathing in and out of a tube hooked to a computer. These test lung functions and capacity.

Only after I did these tests was I diagnosed with asthma.

Hey learning,

Sorry to hear that your little one is suffering from asthma. Since your kid have problems frequently then it would be better to go to a pulmonologist or an allergy and asthma specialist.
