Doctor, please do not write inhalers ..
It is a big myth as we are okay with nebulisers but not with inhalers. Most people either think they are addictive or they are last resort for childhood asthma...
Technically inhalers are mini-nebulisers and if nebuliser is not harmful why these mini inhalers should be harmful?
Fear of addiction lies in history of asthma treatment .As inhalers were invented around 60 years ago and were used in severe asthma . A severe asthma patient needs to take inhalers for life. But most children with asthma have mild to moderate asthma and do not require treatment for life . 
On the contrary if rightly used, they improve growth of the child and spare from side effects of nebulising and oral medicines .
