Hi,

Asthalin should be taken only as required and Budecort should be given on regular basis. Usually in pediatric age group after a trial of improvement with the inhaler the drug will be prescribed. With inhaler no serious problem can happen, if you use it properly. You can use spacer.

Budecort is for prevention and asthalin is for treating the episode. You can use montelukast dose based on his age to prevent respirational attacks.
