BUREAU OF FOOD AND DRUGS (BFAD), the governing body of the Philippines when it comes to medications have intended this product to be for prescription only so be very cautious regarding this.
Asmalin Pulmoneb has been used by my daughter as combatant for her Asthma. One box contains five nebules and should be administered every six to eight hours.
Common effect of this product are tremors, my daughter would usually have uncontrollable light tremors that are evident on her hands but this is normal because Asmalin is a salbutamol based product and this is one side effect of salbutamols, you may check it through MIMS, doctors' guide to medicine. I have seen my daughter's pediatrician carrying this book and checks through it whenever she cannot decide which medicine would be best for my daughter.
I'd say, I prefer nebulizing my daughter rather than have her take some syrup because the smoke will go directly to her lungs thereby give her instant relief. You'll have to wait for some time when administering syrups and I believe that Asthmatic people should have instant relief where breathing is concerned.
Asthma has been part of me and my ex-husband's family, something we cannot get away from as this is part of our genes which thankfully was not passed to us but sadly on our children.
