My 5 yr old has croup she gets is it 4/5 times per yr. She's been prescribed atrovent and cetirizine hydrochloride. Don't seem to work! please advise!

May not be croup: Croup would be somewhat unusual at this age (usually up to 3 years old). I wonder if there is some other airway problem.

With trached child with history of tracheomalacia collapse with albuterol use, how often would it be safe to use albuterol/atrovent combi? How will I know?

Albuterol use: Usually prematurity/prolonged need for ventilator and/or oxygen cause chronic lung disease. So it is not unusual that a bronchodilator would be used.

What are the long-term effects of atrovent nasal spray ? I have used for 10 yrs. This past yr, I have experienced reduced urine flow. Is it related?

Possible: Atrovent (ipratroprium) has been available for quite a long while. It has a low side effect profile. Although i can't say for sure it very unlikely that after 10 years you will begin to have any secondary effects. Like any anti-cholinergic medicine it can cause urinary retention. This is much more common in men, especially if they have protate hyper trophy. There are other meds you can switch. ...Read more
