Asthma Drug Might Stunt Growth

| Filed under: Baby BlabberHealthScary!

This isn't good news at all.

Kids with asthma might need to seek out a different way to control it other than budesonide, which is marketed under several brand names, including Rhinocort and Pulmicort.

That is, kids with asthma that can handle finding something else — the drug is extremely great at handling severe asthma, so researchers don't recommend taking kids off the drug if they need it.

Asthma affects an estimated 6 million U.S. children and millions more adults.

The problem is with growth. Kids tend to be at least half an inch shorter permanently if they're using budesonide. If you ask us, that's still worth it to get asthma under control!

Still, you should talk over options with your doctors!
