Brethine, Bricanyl (Terbutaline Sulphate)

Let me say at the outset that I am a firm believer in the theory that emotional upsets in a child can trigger an asthma attack.
Until very recently it has been widely accepted within medical circles that asthmatics were rather emotional types who could easily develop an attack when distressed. This was always said in a rather critical way as if inferring the child was a ‘weakling’. This opinion I am certain originates from people who have never had first-hand experience of looking after an asthmatic child. My own son, Ross is a very tough boy, but he tends to be a worrier. All through the school holidays he will be perfectly calm with little or no problem with his breathing. Two days before school all that changes as he starts to worry about going back. Within a few hours he starts to wheeze and become short of breath. In other words, it isn’t the asthma that produces the upset – it is the exact reverse. This does not make Ross a ‘weakling’ in any way but it does make him the type in whom stress can produce an asthma attack.
