Q.

Nebulizer

Hi Doc
I have nebs for my 8 month old. I have a machine at home.
The pharmacist said that I should mix the Combivent and Pulmicort however the doc said that I should administer it seperately.

What is the correct way of administering medicaiton using a nebulizer?
Thanks

You do not say why you are using a nebuliser and for such a young baby. I am not happy about you using cortisone [Pulmicort] and Combivent for your baby. Please let me know why these medicines have been prescribed for your baby and I will advise you further.
