Inhaled steroid: Pulmicort respules are the brand name for the inhaled corticosteroid Budesonide in a liquid form approved for the treatment of persistent asthma. It is available in 3 dosage forms: 0.25 mg, 0.5 mg and 1 mg. It is especially useful treatment for infants and those who have difficulty using metered dose inhalers.

Inhaled steroid: Pulmicort respules are a nebulized form of an inhaled steroid. It is available as a generic and comes in three different dosage strengths. It is used usually in infants who may be too young to use an inhaler with a holding chamber. It is best used on a daily basis to control asthma and needs to be used with a relatively tight fitting mask as "blow by" doesn't work.
