In brief: Talk with Dr
Anyone old enough to figure out how to use an inhaler is often better off using one rather than keeping track of the equipment & supplies needed for a nebulizer.
This may require a special demonstration & practice &/or use of a spacer. Routine maintenance meds can be delivered to the lungs in a fraction of the time needed to set up a treatment.If you are unable to use one, the dr can prescribe it.
