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

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

3 month old baby's third week of RSV. Now cough sounds like croup although she's been receiving albuterol-nebulizer treatments (6x/day for 4 days, 3x/?

Hang in there!: We usually try albuterol treatments for RSV in babies. About one third of babies respond. 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

Nasal Saline: 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
