You can mix Albuterol and Pulmicort together and give them at the same time. 


(Note:  The only thing Pulmicort cannot be mixed with is Atrovent or Duoneb.  A different nebulizer cup should be used for each, or the nebulizer cup should be rinsed between Atrovent and Albuterol treatments)

Correction:  I meant to write to end that last paragraph: "...the nebulizer cup should be rinsed between Atrovent and Pulmicort treatments."
