Thanks for query
Levolin is a drug which is used commonly in management of asthma , but it does not means that it can be used only in asthma. There are few conditions also in which it can be used. Actually it causes increase in size of smaller airways so if someone gets signs of spasm of airways then he can use it in that condition. What must have happened in your daughter's case.
With regards
