My almost 2 year old daughter has been prescribed a short course of prednisolone as the GP thinks she may be asthmatic. In addition to this she has been on Amoxicylln for a chest infection.
Since starting these her behavious has changed dramatically to the point that we are not sure whether to give her the final dose of prednisolone. She has started to scream and yell constantly and to cry inconsolably, this has been going on for 3 days and nothing we do seems to calm her once she is worked up like this. She may be calm for a short time and then she just changes. Our normal distraction techniques are not effective and we are at our wits ends. It is just not her and I am reluctant to think that it is "the terrible twos" as it happened like the flick of a switch which in my experience with my other child is not how this transition occurs..
Does anyone have any idea if it could be a reaction to the medication- the prednisolone in particular as she has been on the other several times?
