Either : You may use your Albuterol as directed using either the nebulized for or the MDI ( puff inhaler) as directed. The MDI or nebulizer is the delivery method for the medication. Therefore, you should select one or the other. A virtual consultation may be provided by Healthtap for asthma recommendations. Avoid smoke, pollen, dust and mold.
