Hi and welcome to Healingwell. :) I know it's scary to give our children medicine but I think that if it was my child, I would do anything including medicating if it eases asthma symptoms. My son is older (15) but has had breathing difficulties all his life. At the age of 4 he was using Albuterol with a spacer and even then I didn't like to give it to him but it did make his breathing easier. I would go with what the doctors suggest but like Josey said, if in doubt ask for a second opinion.
