In brief: NO

Combivent (albuterol and ipratropium) is an inhaler that contains a combination of salbutamol and ipratroprium bromide.
It is approved for use in copd. There is no safety data for children under 12, and hence should not be used in a child that is age 4. There are many safe alternatives that are approved for use in young children, talk with your doctor.
