bonlee,
you might want to give the doc a call today - you don't want to get into the weekend and he's still having trouble.

this is what I found as a definition for salbutamol:
"Ventolin containing albuterol is prescribed for the prevention and relief of bronchial spasms that narrow the airway. This especially applies to the treatment of asthma. Some brands of this medication are also used for the prevention of bronchial spasm due to exercise.

Do not take albuterol more frequently than your doctor recommends. Increasing the number of doses can be dangerous and may actually make symptoms of asthma worse."

My son did not do as well in controling his symptoms with the Flovent inhaler. You might just need to get his switched to something different. Each child reacts differently to medicines and this Flovent just might not be the right one for him.

Let me know what happens.

btw, my daughter's lungs were ok, but she did have a sinus infection - so now both have been antibioticed before the holidays!!! We might actually have a healthy Christmas this year - woohoo!
