Hello from JustAnswer.
The usual recommended dosing frequency for inhaled albuterol in a 3 year old is every 6 hours. However, if he is still having shortness of breath, it would be OK to give hime another dose after 4 hours, but the maximum dose of 10 mg over 24 hours should not be exceeded, which would usually be 4 doses over the course of 24 hours.
So, if he was given a dose at 6:45, he can be given another dose at 10:45.
If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
The system also says that you have requested a phone call, but that was while I was typing an answer. If the typed answer includes the information that you were seeking, that is fine. But if you would still like a phone call, I will send an Offer for Premium Services.
It is fine if you do not desire a phone call, but I have already posted the typed answer.
