My 9 month old baby has been advised to take salbutamol for past three weeks since he has severe cough and cold. Is it safe? He does not have wheezing

In brief: Not used in Kids

Here in the US the drug is not used in kids.
It is a long acting product that has not met the safety guidelines of our Food and Drug administration for infant/toddler/early school age. Shorter acting albuterol is often used in such situations.
