Can my child use pirbuterol?

Depending on how old your child is, pirbuterol may be a treatment choice. Children who are younger than 12 years old should not use pirbuterol since it has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for children this young. However, a child older than 12 may benefit from pirbuterol. Be sure that your child understands how to correctly use the inhaler, as well as how to store and clean it. Finally, make sure that your child knows that there is a limit to how many sprays can be used each day: no more than 12 sprays in one day.
