My doctor said no. I don't think you can get one without a prescription anyway. The asthma needs to be controlled the proper way. If he needs a nebulizer I think that means its not under control. Supoosed to be used in only rescue situations.

I think this is something you need to discuss with your doctor. Every child with asthma should have an asthma management plan and this would be part of that plan. They don't tend to recommend nebulisers these days, recommending spacers and puffers instead (at least, they do here in Australia).
