Once we got home and I got situated back into my routine mom decided to give the Atropine a shot. It is 1 drop under my tongue. In 30 minutes my excess secretions, (saliva) was dried up. Before you knew it, I wasn’t coughing as much and Roxy wasn’t having to aspirate (suction) me every minute. It seems to be working! Mom would give me two drops a day one in the morning and one at night before bed. As the week went onto I was happier and more attentive. The stress of having phlegm all the time and having to be suctioned only makes matter worse for me so the less phlegm the better. All the searching and investigating on how to get me the Atropine seems to have paid off.
Love Malia
