Vitamin for the lung


Baby XJ was having cough off and on. This has been going on for almost 1 month.

In this 1 month long, she did not have any fever *touch wood*, appetite were good and were active too. That's the reason I did not rush her to see the pead. and hope she will miraculously recover. Alas, waiting for so long, she is still coughing and I started to get worried. I did gave her some chinese medications for about 1 week but that does not help.

Last Sunday (18/4), I bought baby XJ to the clinic. Doctor prescribed her with 2 weeks of medications and if the condition did not improved, she will need an X-ray. Pray... pray... hope she will recover by then.

1 bottle to clear off her phlegm
1 bottle for allegy (doc said allergy cause coughing too!)
14 packets of lung vitamins to strengten her lung.

And these medications plus consultancy fees cost RM126.

  9. Right b4 CNY my girl fell sick too, the Doc also prescribed Singulair for her lungs and claimed she had allergic induced cough. A week later we consulted a specialist in SDMC, she was then diagnosed as bronchitis and mid ear infection. :p

    Hope XJ recover soon and have a pleasant weekend to you!

  18. Singulair is vy exp. It worked for my son. He took that for 3 mths (the tablet type). After that course, whenever he has cough, it's much milder n doesn't linger for vy long. Hope bb gets well soon!

  27. Singulair is expensive. My boy Fearles i also give him for one month supply. You know one box for one month supply is about RM240+ lucky i can get it cheaper at one pharmacy nearby my house. Doctor write the letter so i can purchase it at pharmacy. I can see some improvement on him, at least not coughing so often *touch wood*. Last time he use to cough every month. Once a week i will boil some soup or tong sui to nourish his lung.

    Hope your girl feel a lot better now.
