Depends. In children beta agonists/bronchodilators are the mainstay of treatment for asthma flares. Some children also take daily antihistamines or leukotrene antagonists (like singular). When in doubt you need to check with your pediatrician. Some advocate having an asthma action plan so you know what to give your child when their asthma flares.
