Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Let me assure you that nebulization with 0.63 mg levolin is safe for 8 months old kid. The short term side effect can be increased heart rate. On long term no side effects are expected. Nebulization is better than respules which is better than syrups.

Let me know if I could help further.
