[e-drug] Oral salbutamol versus inhaled Salbutamol

E-DRUG: Oral salbutamol versus inhaled Salbutamol
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[The WHO Essential Medicines list for children (2013 - 4th List) does not 
include oral salbutamol - only aerosol for inhalation, injection and solution 
for nebuliser.

And here is a review article from WHO - 2008.

Dear E-druggers

Has anyone come across an article that shows  superiority of inhaled Salbutamol 
over oral Salbutamol due to side effects. I would appreciate if someone can 
direct me to such an article .
