I think I posted a question a long time ago about how many difficult child's with mood disorders had been on treatment for asthmatic wheezing as very young children. Anyway, now I am trying to do an ametuer research about risks of steroids that are given to young children/infants as a medication. My son had steroid medications many times in his early years. Some were creams for ezcema, and I don't worry too much about them. Others were given when he was an infant until middle elementary school age. I don't know the name(s) of them, but they were liquid medications given when allergies or congestion or wheezing were a problem. He was on albuterol with a nebulizer about twice a year from 3mos until 4 1/2 yo. I can't shed the doubt in my mind that these medications might have something to do with so many kids with mood disorders these days. When my son was born, there evidently was this revalation that adequate treatment for their congestion and/or wheezing would prevent life-long asthma or other problems. I see that it worked for my son; however, my question is has anyone ever researched to see if the medications used to do that causes mood disorders? I remember telling the prescribing nurse on a couple of occassions that although dimetapp worked wonders on getting my baby to breathe easier and get some sleep when he had a bad cold, it left him wheezing the next day. She was adamant that this could not be true. I assured her that it was, I didn't know why, but I gave it to him 3 times and 3 times he was wheezing the next day, so recommend something else. She did, but kept swearing that the other medications would have the same ingredients. Well, the others didn't leave him wheezing the next day. Now I see that dimetapp has been removed for infants due to too many bad reactions. What about the albuterol or steroids? Does anyone know or at least, can you point me in the right direction to find out what warnings are on the labels of the steroid medications used for young children? Thanks!
