No, Ventolin belongs to the drug class adrenergic bronchodilators.

A Ventolin HFA inhaler should not be given to a child younger than 4 years old.

Ventolin is an Albuterol inhaler. My youngest son was on that as a toddler. Under care of a doctor a child can use this with an aero chamber. This can be used instead of Albuterol in a nebulizer.
