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.

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.

He may need to be re-checked and/or his medications adjusted. ...Read more
