Thanks for writing to us.

I understand your concern.

Levolin is levosalbutamol which is bronchodilator given to relieve spasm.

Budecort is budesonide which is a glucocorticoid and is given to relieve spasm and shortness of breath in asthmatic patients.It is given as prophylactic and maintenance therapy.

I suggest you to give levolin nebulisation as it is used as rescue therapy in relieving acute symptoms.

Whether to give levolin alone or in combination with budecort depends on severity of symptoms as well.

I suggest you to give medication as prescribed by your pediatrician.

Continue with ambrolite .

Hope I have answered your query.If you have any other query I would be glad to help.

Wishing your child good health.

God bless..
