Dosage of levolin for 6 year old with cold and cough with history of febrile convulsion. Is it safe?

Dear Doctor, My 6 yr old daughter (19 kg) is suffering from cough & cold . She has a history of Febrile convulsion. My old Doctor used to prescribe Vent BEC inhaler (from Merck) with decreasing hourly doses for 7 days. But since he has been transferred now the new doc has prescribed Levolin inhaler (from Cipla) with 2 puffs , twice daily. So I wanted to know if Levolin is safe and if the dosage is correct.

There may be some differences in the treatment advised by different doctors. The basic principles of treatment are same. Levolin is safe and you can use it as advised by your doctor. If your child does not respond to it or if there is any other problem you can approach your doctor. If she has completed 6 years she is unlikely to get febrile seizure.
