Its not that Salbetol is prescribed for Asthma
alone, it can be prescribed in other cases too but it should be cautiously used in a child as young as 5-months old. Especially, don't use it on prolonged basis, not more than 5-7 days lest child gets side-effects like tremors, etc.
You better use nebulization with salbutamol
, that would be much safer and effective. Thanks.
