My son who is 15 month old has been on Pulmicort since he was about 4-6 months, after having repeated severe breathing, wheezing, crackling lung problems since he was 3 weeks old. I have noticed some improvement from 2-3 episodes a month of him being sick to about once every 2-3 months. So I must say he does benefit from hospital and doctor visits than before. But most importantly he breathes and sleeps better.

I read that this is a fairly safe drug. I never had breathing problems but breathing tests showed otherwise so I was given this med. I feel fine just don't know about long term (over a yr) effects.

My 9 yr old daughter uses pulmicort at the first sign of an oncoming cold and she has stayed symptom free and out of the hospital for 2 yrs now.
