my 5 month old baby is RSV + been to ER more than 5 times, is it ok to give her xopenex 0.63mg/3ml through nebulizer for wheezing & coughing?

Definitely but she

needs to be monitored &managed by her pediatrician.Sounds like she is not under control.She may need steroids either orally 4 short course, 5 days or add pulmicort to her regimen.Be aggressive initially &wean her off Xopenex &eventually maintain her on pulmicort twice daily till controlled & then once at night 4 a few months then re- evaluate.if ex-expremie,she may need Synagis. Discuss w her MD.

My chest hurts and feels congested. I take my proair every hour, as well as my nebulizer. I can cough all the mucus out, which I believe is the cause.

STOP!!!

Albuterol
You need to go to the emergency room or call your doctor.very dangerous to take your Proair every hour with your nebulizer (hopefully it is not a bronchodilator) .if it is, you are overdosing yourself and making yourself sicker.if you are that tight you need steroids to help decrease the swelling in your lungs.Good that you are coughing up the mucus but using Proair every hour is a NO NO!!!

Taking Avelox prednisone and albuterol nebulizer. Coughed really bad and had urine leakage. It was brown. I also have endometriosis.

Urine analysis

Albuterol
You should consider having your doctor do a urine analysis. This type of analysis involves giving a small sample of urine and testing urine to make sure that there is no bacteria in the urine. Sometimes medications especially antibiotics can cause color changes to occur in the urine as well.

If i got no option by any chance can i use water as medicine into nebulizer to help in cough or breath cases ?

Improves cough

Cough
all that would do is like a humidifier, it may improve your cough and hydrate the secretions. Better to use normal saline to avoid swelling of the cells due to the water being hypotonic, and yes, we don't recommend to use water alone especially if no limit. It can make you feel like drowning with more swelling of the airways and cells.

This really depends on your precise diagnosis. If you have not seen a pulmonologist, I recommend waiting to see what your pulmonologist recommends.

Call your doc

O/c cough meds may help a cough caused by drainage, but if it is from something else and the albuterol is not helping,you need to see your doc.

Is it okay to give albuterol thru nebulizer to my youngest child (5yrs) who has been coughing daily?

Need maintenance Rx

Albuterol
Nebulizers are good, but with a little practice, 5 year olds should do well with a metered dose inhaler (MDI, often called a puffer) & spacer. (Spacers = large "tubes" to use between the child & the MDI; they help make sure the medicine gets into the lungs where it helps.) MDIs are much easier + kids can gain some independence. But, daily albuterol need means you need maintenance Rx. See your doc.
