Hello doctor,

My 6-year-old child is having asthma and is coughing in the night. He uses a nebulizer. I am giving him normal saline. Please help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Since your child is having an asthmatic cough, I suggest you give Asthalin (Salbutamol/Albuterol) nebulization and Budecort (Budesonide) nebulization along with an oral cough syrup with Salbutamol or Levosalbutamol. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and with their consent take the medicines.

Just giving normal saline will not help.

If the wheezing is heavy consult your pediatrician.

Thank you doctor,

Please suggest also the quantity of purchase and how much quantity to nebulize per day?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

You can give one respules of Asthalin (Salbutamol / Albuterol) nebulization per dose three times daily and Budecort (Budesonide) respules twice daily for five days.

You may also give Ascoril LS (Ambroxol, Levosalbutamol / Levalbuterol, Guaifenesin) syrup thrice daily orally.
