within a day, wow, I would not have done this if I have to wait a day. Never mentioned at beginning before payment. Knowing the law a bit, that should be reviewed by your legal team. Right now my concern is my son

Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.

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.
