My boy does not suffer from regular asma, but he does sometimes experience some wheezing, like when he laughs alot. The other night we were at a restaurant, and my husband's friend was playing with my boy, and he laughed alot, and started caughing and wheezing. We were 200km away from home, his Ped did gave him some Ventolin syrup when needed, but this makes him feel very bad...I uses Venteze inhaler for my own asma(very seldom), and now I wonder: Is it save to use Venteze for my boy (because I usualy carry my Venteze inhaler with me), or do I need to stick with the Ventolin syrup?
The Venteze Inhaler is much safer and more effective than the Ventolin Syrup.Your son will need a spacer device when using the inhaler-ask your pharmacist.
