DS who's just 1 has been prescribed steroids by the GP for a persistant cough/wheeze/struggling to breath which isn't being made any better by antibiotics or inhalers.

On the leaflet that came with the medication is says dose for under 2yo is 10mg a day. He's been prescribed 20mg a day, is that correct? Now to wait for the hospital referral to come through, poor guy is not happy at the moment.
