Inhalers for asthma can stop the growth in children, according to a new study.

During the first year, these drugs can slow the growth for about half a centimeter, according to the results of studies based on surveys of more than 8,000 children under the age of 19 years with mild to moderate asthma.

It's a small price to protect against deadly asthma attacks, doctors reported. This side effect of inhaler can be avoided by taking smaller doses of medication.

The study focused on corticosteroids contained in inhalers that are prescribed most often at the beginning of treatment in adults and in children with persistent asthma.

"This effect is less common as children get older. Drug does not accumulate in the body and does not interfere with the full development of the lungs", said Dr. Zhang from the Federal University of Rio Grande in Brazil.
