Is It Acceptable To Give A Seven Month Old Albuterol
Only if doctor says!: If your child's doctor prescribes albuterol for him/her to treat wheezing, then give it. Never use someone else's prescription for your baby. Albuterol only helps for wheezing/reactive airways disease, and if that's not what your baby has, it won't help and it can have side effects. ...Read more
Ventolin is the trade name for the chemical / drug albuterol. This drug is a medicine to be inhaled to open the airways and it acts quickly, so it is called a "short-acting bronchodilator". The medicine comes in both a hand-held inhaler and as a liquid to be used with a nebulizer machine. It also comes in a liquid form to take by mouth, but this should not be used ...Read more

Is it safe to give my 5 year old albuterol from breathing treatment machine. It was prescribed to my 11 month old for bronchitis?
Only if doctor says.: If your 5 year old has been diagnosed with asthma previously and is now having the same symptoms, you can give it, but call your pediatricians and let them know you're doing so. If your 5 year old has never had this problem before, it's best to have him/her seen by the pediatrician to get a correct diagnosis and see what the best treatment is for that diagnosis, since it may not be asthma. ...Read more

My 7 month old is admitted due to increased heart rate, likely due to consumption of ventolin. How serious is this?
Depends on situation: Infants easily tolerate heart rates in the 200/min range for a variable length of time. If intake has stopped, 1/2 should be out of babies system in 4-6 hours with 1/2 the remainder in another 4-6h. Baby should do fine if this was the cause. If there is another issue the outcome depends on that issue. ...Read more

How long should bronchiolitis last in 3.5 month old. She's on albuterol and Pulmicort nebulizers, and Zantac (ranitidine) 3xday. Could it be more serious?
A month: The coughing and wheezing from bronchiolitis can last for a month. Typically it lasts about ten days, but it is not at all unusual to last 3 weeks or more. Follow up visits with your doctor weekly would probably be a good idea as other problems could occur such as an ear infection. ...Read more
Can my 2 month old use an nebulizer with albuterol 2.5ml? She sounds so congested and I've been cleaning her nose with saline solution for a month
Nasal wash: At 2mo the primary cause of congestion is the environment. House dust, fragrance, perfumes, cleaning products all leave scents that may not bother you but irritate a babies nose. A good nasal clean out with saline can remove much of this irritant load, but removing the offending irritants from babies life helps more in the long run. Air particle filters can also help. No nebs without doc visit ...Read more

As long as she is not spiking a fever now and her breathing is stable, she has 3 wet diapers daily, hang in there another week. Start to finish, this is a month long illness! Keep all your followup appointments with her pediatrician. I'm glad she's doing well at home! You are doing a great job! ...Read more
My 3 month old is on regalin and Zantac (ranitidine) for gerd, is it save to add bromofed dm, zithromax, and albuterol inhalants all together? Lot if med for baby
It is best to check with your doctor regarding the reason each was prescribed. For nasal congestion and post nasal drip, nasal saline and bulb suction may be used. At the age of 3 months, I would not suggest a decongestant cough preparation be used.
Gerd may lead to aspiration into the lungs and cause wheezing. It is best to feed the baby at an upright angle and not to prop the bottle, . ...Read more

Can I give my 6 year old son ritalin (methylphenidate) 10 mg while he's taking his asthma meds, albuterol and pulmacort respuse in his nebuliser?
Yes, you can: There is no contra-indication to continue to treat your son with ritalin, (methylphenidate) if he has been on the drug. If he has not taken the drug before, I would wait until his asthma is better. More importantly, at age 6 your son should be taught how to use a regular inhaler rather than a nebuliser. If he has not seen an asthma specialist, he should. ...Read more
If my 4 year old had albuterol nebulizer treatment an hour ago, can I still give him his prescription hydroxyzine 10mg/5ml for postnasaldrip cough now?
Is there anything I can give my 2 year old who has persistent cough? I've already given him albuterol and budesonide. I read Benadryl (diphenhydramine) helps?
See his doctor: Cough can be due to several causes, reactive airway disease is just one, sinusitis, ear infection or any upper respiratory tract infection can still cause it. How did you give him the albuterol and the budesonide? I trust at his age you used a nebulizer, but make sure you've mixed the right dosage and the mask was fitting to his face so the medicine isn't wasted, see his doctor for better assessment ...Read more
