Long acting bronchodilator helps to control asthma for 12 hrs with each puff so better to take formoterol budesonide twice a day followed by gargles.

If you're child has asthma don't deprive him of any respules or mdi pump
infact he/ she should be given duolin respules twice or thrice a day with budecort respules twice a day
once chest is better can shift to mdi / pump formoflo / budamate child one with lesser dose with spacer can be started.

Dear lybrate-user, clonazepam is habit forming and over time it starts to lose its efficacy. Meaning, in the beginning, a 0.25 mg dose would put you to sleep, over a period of time, you will find difficulty sleeping at same dose. Now that you have completed 3 years with clonazepam, I would suggest you to try to find an alternative before stopping it. There are several herbal medicines available that help in sleep management. You may consult me for that.

While asthalin contains salbutamol, salbair contains levosalbutamol.
Levosalbutamol is a isomer of salbutamol with comparatively lesser side effect potential.
Recent international guidelines don't support the preferred use of either salbutamol or levosalbutamol for asthma.

You can't stop inhalers for adult or child if they have breathlessness asthma allergy etc. Do absolute eosinophil count
do total serum ige and inform then continue nebulisers and mdi inhaler
any doctor who says your child just has allergy or just bronchitis is doing a crime of not recognising your child's problems and diagnosis as asthma
treat with mdi and continue for at least 5 years.
Sometimes childhood asthma withers / goes away by 12 years of age and may come back in 40's.

The technique of using mdi or pump is not correct probably you can use a spacer with mdi inhaler foracort twice mrng puffs and twice night puffs followed by gargles
asthalin pump can be used 2-2-2 or sos when required nebulisation can be done with lupi neb kit which prevents wastage of nebs / medication
any other doubts contact via Lybrate call for further assistance.
