Albuterol Nebulizer Treatment For Pregnant Women
Rescue/maintenance: Albuterol is a rescue medication (unless used before exertion) and it's frequency of use dictates the status of ones airways. Ideally albuterol should be used rarely if at all but that is not always the case. Advair is a daily maintenance medication. It's use should in theory reduce or eliminate the need for the use of a rescue medication (eg albuterol). If both are needed albuterol is first. ...Read more

I have asthma and copd, I use a nebulizer for treatment along with the albuterol sulfate solution. Is there a better solution to use to help me?
Proper treatment: In my opinion, contrary to others, these conditions should always be treated with inhaled steroid first and then add. This prevents inflammation and twitchy airways. In COPD there is bowing of midsize airways due to tissue destruction. This is helped with anticholinergics (thiotropium or ipratropium) this allows the rescue albuterol to get into the distal airways for rescue, more mainstay in asthm. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
6 yo has bronchitis. Just gave him albuterol in nebulizer and his cough is really bad after treatment . It sounds productive though. Is this normal?
It is normal to: cough more right after a nebulization treatment. The medication loosens up the mucous in the airway passages. However, if he is wheezing more or having difficulty breathing, or he seems to need a treatment in less than 2 hours, you should call his pediatrician. He may need to be re-checked and/or his medications adjusted. ...Read more

Asthma-coughing fits between Nebulizer/albuterol treatments. Better to steam/cool mist? Foods/teas? Sit up, lay, walk? I cough until I gag/cry.
See your doctor: Sounds like your asthma is may need a tune up. Go see your doctor, you likely need a steroid inhaler or possibly a combination inhaler with albuterol and a steroid to help calm things down. Moist air may help a bit (like the nebulizer) but sounds like you need more than that. Positioning your body, certain foods likely won't make a difference either. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No: While you can mix the 2 medications together, it is preferable to separate them. The albuterol should be given first because it will quickly open up the airways and allow the pulmicort a better chance to get further into the airways. The timing between the 2 is generally 10-20 minutes apart. ...Read more
