Is It Safe To Give My 5 Year Old Albuterol From Breathing Treatment Machine It Was Prescribed To My 11 Month Old For Bronchitis
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
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
Budesonide inhalation suspension 0.5 mg or albuterol sulfate 2.5mg. I have chronic bronchitis and I have both of these for my "at home" breathing treatments. Which would help most?
Depends: The two meds you list are very different and intended for different purposes. Budesonide (pulmicort) is a steroid to reduce inflammation where as albuterol is a smooth muscle relaxer designed to reduce bronchospasm of the smaller airways surrounded by smooth muscle fibers. Albuterol's effect is very brief and temporary. Budesonide use provides sustained beneficial effects to prevent flare up. ...Read more
I have POTS, on beta blocker for rapid HR. Frequently also get Bronchitis. Is Albuterol a safe breathing treatment for me, with my tachycardia & meds?
Hello and welcome to HealthTap :) Usually the tachycardia related to POTS is postural, if you lay down it should be relatively safe, which is obviously not possible all the time. The second option would. Levoalbuterol which causes very less tachycardia if any.
Thank you ...Read more

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
My daughter has been put on albuterol for machine and flovent inhaler. Prednason. How far apart should be taken? She's 11 with bronchitis, asthma rsv.
No relation: The Flovent inhaler should be administered either once or twice a day, everyday. This will only prevent her from becoming ill. The Prednisone should be limited to a 5 day course and is typically administered daily. The albuterol is your rescue medication. You shoudl give it to your daughter when she is having trouble breathing. You can safely give it every 3 hours if you have to. ...Read more

Have bronchitis, inhaler and neb treatments not really helping. What else can I do? *on cipro&albuterol*
Bronchitis: There are a few things I would recommend. First of all, you may wish to discuss the choice of antibiotics with your physician. The most correct way to treat an infection is with a culture of your phlegm. You may also need a chest xray, or be a candidate for inhaled and/or oral steroids. At home, try using humidifier for easier breathing. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with bronchitis, I was put on albuterol treatments. I woke up this morning with numb fingers and toes. What could this be?
Reactions: Although there are no overt drug to drug interactions with all your meds they all have overlapping side effects. This results in a chaotic setup for a number of additional problems. Even your primary issues could cause that reaction. Check with your doc. Not to worry. .. Oh an additional idea is to get one of those home pulse o2 meters to see where your 02 levels are which will help your doc. ...Read more
Unlikely: There is nothing in this medication that would bring the yeast germ to you & cause the problem. However, if you use equipment (reservoir, mouthpiece, etc) that is contaminated, the equipment could be a source. Equipment should be properly cleaned & sanitized at regular intervals & changed when they become visibly worn. ...Read more
What is the rattle noise upon exhaling when my toddler has a respiratory infection? Should I continue the albuterol breathing treatments?
Rattle noise exhalin: I think what you are describing is wheezing and your pediatrician has prescribed Albuterol Inhalation for it. Did you ask the doc if your child has asthma and if it is, you need to get educated to take care of your child. Asthma is an inflammatory disease of the bronchi and you need proper treatment with inhaled steroids and albuterol, unless he is being treated for bronchiolitis. ...Read more
My 5 y/o she is taking omnicef (cefdinir) 125/5 sus & breathing treatments of albuterol. She has been complaining of pain in lower right abdomen. Related?

Yesterday I started 40 mg prednisone avelox 400mg and albuterol breathing treatments. I'm still wheezing when I push out an exhale. Is this normal?
Maybe: A bacterial process can take 2-3 days to show improvement w/antibiotics. If you are still wheezing, you may need the albuterol more frequently. If you are not comfortable at rest, you may need to go to er. Otherwise, vaporizer/humidifier may help + usual cold medicines for symptom relief. ...Read more
What can a person on beta blockers do for chest wheeze, cough, phlegm when albuterol breathing treatments are contraindicated? How to clear out lungs?
Alternative: I don't know the contraindication to albuterol but there is Levalbuterol as alternative. In addition, an inhaled steroid is usually indicated for chronic lung problems. Revisit your bblocker as there are also more selective ones that don't induce bronchospasm. Talk to your doctor about these. And definitely try to see if you can get cough meds. Cough can induce wheezing. Good luck. ...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?
Hi, my 5 year old daughter has cough and wheezing. Can I give her salbutamol liquid medicine by mouth along with albuterol inhaler?
Is abuterol safe to give with this type of Mucinex medicine? Will breathing treatments be beneficial at this point? Treating my daughter with mucinex- cough, cold & sore throat medicine since yesterday (2/17/12). Her cough was tight and is now breaking-up
Number: Number one question one must ask is what is your daughter`s diagnosis. If she has asthma she needs to be on maintenance medication instead of just albuterol (albuterol is considered a rescue medication in inhaler or nebulizer form and is not a substitute for controller medication). Mucinex (guaifenesin) may or may not help depending on underlying reasons for her cough, exacerbating/aggravating factors for her cough and underlying diagnosis. ...Read more
I have a 3 month old baby boy and he has bronchitis he is on breathing treatments after 4 days and not getting any better?
But is he stable?: Lower airway inflammation like you have with bronchitis is unlikely to resolve within days on any form of treatment. The breathing treatments help wet the airways and decrease the thickness of debris and mucous. Most kids with bronchitis will gradually improve over a week to 2 wks. Some may cough for a month. If the kid is wetting diapers every 6h and resting some, he is stable, if not get re-ck. ...Read more
