No relation: The Flovent inhaler should be administered either once or twice a day, everyday. This will only prevent her from becoming ill. The Prednisone should be limited to a 5 day course and is typically administered daily. The albuterol is your rescue medication. You shoudl give it to your daughter when she is having trouble breathing. You can safely give it every 3 hours if you have to.
