Alukon is indicated in the treatment of asthma as add-on therapy in patients 6 months to 5 years of age with mild to moderate persistent asthma who are inadequately controlled on inhaled corticosteroids and in whom ‘as-needed’ short acting beta-agonists provide inadequate clinical control of asthma.
Alukon can also be an alternative to low-dose inhaled corticoids in patients 2 to 5 years of age with mild persistent asthma with no recent history of severe asthma attacks requiring oral corticoid therapy, and who have demonstrated inability to adhere to inhaled corticoid therapy.
Alukon is also indicated in the prophylaxis of asthma from 2 years of age and older in which the predominant component is exercise-induced bronchoconstriction.
Patients of 6 months to 5 years
One (1) sachet of 4 mg granules per day, to be taken in the evening.
At least 1 hour before or 2 hours after food.
There is no need to adjust the dosage in this age group.
