Default newborn/infant 3 month old xopenex

newborn/infant 3month old xopenex

My 3 month old was prescribed xopenex.
I'm waiting 8-10 hours between treatments and maybe only half the vial.
I am holding the nebulizer mouthpiece about 2-3 inches away fom his mouth and nose.
It is making him squirmy, suppressing his hunger and he is not sleeping well.

1-Are there alternative treatments that don't affect his appetite at least?

2-Does anyone know if diluting the xopenex with water is ok?

3-Is this drug for relief only or will it actually accelerate his well being?

Default Xopenex

1. You should not add water to solution.
2. You can ask your doctor to reduce the dose or change schedule given.

You didn't say what dose: 0.31mg, 0.63mg, or 1.25mg?
