Discussions that mention xopenex

Children's Health board

Please Help!! When my son was 2 months old he was diagnosed with RSV and hospitalized for 3 days. We were told to use a nuebulizer filled with Xopenex. Now, at 4 months, he has been diagnosed with reacitve airway disease. We are using the nebulizer agian, this time filled with Albuterol. He is weezy and seems to be congested all the time. Has anyone ever heard of this before? Isn't Albuterol used to treat asthma? Does this diagnoses mean that he is more prone to contracting asthma? What can we do at home to stop the weezing and congestion? He is still VERY happy and extremely palyful in the 75th percentile in everything. Does anyone have any advice?
