Before taking this medicine inform doctor if you are suffering from any kidney, liver or heart disease. Your doctor may regularly monitor your blood potassium levels.

Questions Related to Levolin

Allergic asthma and bronchitis, having dry cough from last week, on levolin pump and ambrodyl syrup
Dr. Gopal Samdani
Child Specialist
Your child may be suffering from Asthama. Asthma can be hard to diagnose. Your child's doctor will consider the nature and frequency of symptoms and may use tests to rule out other conditions and to identify the most likely cause of his or her symptoms. A number of childhood conditions can have symptoms similar to those caused by asthma. To make things more complicated, these conditions also commonly co-occur with asthma. So your child's doctor will have to determine whether your child's symptoms are caused by asthma, a condition other than asthma, or both asthma and another condition. In children 5 years of age and older, doctors diagnose asthma with the same tests used to identify the disease in adults. Lung function tests (spirometry) measure how quickly and how much air your child can exhale. Your child may have lung function tests at rest, after exercising and after taking asthma medication. In younger children, diagnosis can be difficult because lung function tests aren't accurate before 5 years of age. Your doctor will rely on detailed information you and your child provide about symptoms. Sometimes a diagnosis can't be made until later, after months or even years of observing symptoms
