Hello, thanks for the query to H.C.M.C.
Your's little one might have bronchospasm and that's why doctor prescribed ASTHALIN
Since child is two months ( 2 months) and sorry to say that if age of patient is less than two yrs , this drug is not advised.
Cefpodoxime is an antibiotic and can be given. Salbutamol ( asthalin ) is contraindicated children below two yrs so stop at once and have next option (drug) for bronchodilation in children if required .
Regards , Dr. HET
