Medicine For Children Aged 2 Years Who Experience Shortness?

Can children with shortness be given 2 mg salbutamol

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for the question


Salbutamol is a bronchodilator drug that works to dilate the lower airway which narrows in several conditions such as asthma. Shortness of breath is not always caused by asthma so the treatment is not always with bronchodilator. Each drug is given a clear medical indication based on the symptoms that exist and the results of a physical examination by a doctor, therefore it is not advisable to take self-medication, especially the child's drug dose must always be calculated based on body weight so that the risk of overdosing and other side effects.


The causes of sudden shortness of breath in children themselves can vary, including:


1. Pneumonia
2. Bronchiolitis
3. Asthma
4. Acute allergic reactions


For the time being, you should do further consultation with your doctor if the tightness has not improved. Avoid giving drugs freely to children freely without a doctor's recommendation and examination.


That's all, hope you can help.
Wassalam.
