Thanks for posting your query.
For acute asthmatic attacks, you can take injection deriphyllin. But having a salbutamol inhaler or a nebulisation will offer a better and instant relief from the congestion. You can consult a physician for appropriate dosage regimens according to your built and the clinical symptoms.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
