In brief: Typically no
Medications for nebulizer use are formulated as prevervative free to prevent irritant or allergic reactions to these compounds.

In brief: ????
What products are you talking about? Antimicrobials? Antifungals? Or asthma medications.
Bacteriostatic simply means it prevents bacteria from reproducing but does not kill the bacteria.
