For severe asthma: every 3-4 hours. For mild to moderate asthma- every 4-6 hours. Consult your private physician for medication to prevent attacks.

What is the difference between the albuterol in my new nebulizer and the albuterol in my rescue inhaler?

Nothing really: The primary difference is the device used to deliver the albuterol. The medications are the same and if the device is used correctly, both techniques should yield the same beneficial results.
