Brief Answer:
Albuterol can be given as an alternative

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

You can give nebulization with albuterol. I think it is available in Dubai. Any other bronchodilator medication can be used.

Levolin contains levosalbutamol which is the levo isomer of salbulamol. Salbutamol is also known as albuterol.

Let me know if I could help further.

Brief Answer:
Monteleukast + cetririzine should be helpful.

Detailed Answer:
You can give Singulair (Monteleukast) 4 mg tablet and some antiallergic like cetirizine along with nebulizer. That should provide relief. However, monteleukast is a prescription medicine and you would need your doctor to write it down for you.
