Inhaled corticosteroids for the treatment of chronic asthma in children under the age of 12 years

NICE technology appraisals [TA131] Published date:

If inhaled corticosteroids are appropriate for children aged under 12 years who have chronic asthma, the least expensive product that is suitable for the individual child should be used.
If both an inhaled corticosteroid and a long-acting beta-2 agonist are needed, then a combination device that contains both medicines may be used. The decision to use a combination device should be based on the individual child and their asthma. If a combination device is chosen, the least expensive device that is suitable for the individual child should be used.
