In brief: Possibly

Dulera and symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) have labeling stating that they are recommended starting at age 12 while advair can be used starting at age 4.
Albuterol inhalers can be used at any age. The above are all typically asthma treatments. If your medical professional prescribed Dulera to your 6 yr old please just contact their office because they may have a legitimate reason for its use.
