Side effects overview
When it comes to the side effects of this bronchodilator, some of the more frequent ones include intense headaches, coughing, and irritation, as well as runny nose. Luckily, in the greatest majority of cases, these and the similar unpleasant side effects can be relieved fairly easy, either by the person him/herself or by a doctor. But, on the other hand, some of the side effects can be quite serious and sever in nature – irregular heart rhythm, difficulties associated with breathing and progressive in nature and various manifestations preceding a potential allergic reaction. One important thing that requires emphasis is that not in every case will Albuterol cause side effects and serious problems in a person who takes it. As a matter of fact, the research studies done so far pointed out that the greatest majority of people do not have tolerance issues, i.e. the substance itself causes no harm. In those cases in which they become evident, they are fairly easy to cure since they are of mild nature. For a more complete and simple overview of the possible side effects, one should refer to the following list – besides those mentioned above, one might also experience pain in muscles and/or bones, nausea, nervousness, tremors, insomnia, irritation affecting the throat, infections of the upper respiratory tract and also vomiting.
More serious side effects
The following side effects require immediate visit to the doctors and consultation on the further steps that need to be taken in order for the side effect to be fully and successfully treated. These are: continuously worsening breathing problems, arrhythmia, tachycardia, hypertension, diabetes, severe anxiety and allergic reaction indicators (e.g. unexplained rash, itching, hives, swelling, wheezing and inability to breathe or swallow properly).
The main problem is that a doctor or a health care provider who you decide to turn to cannot be quite sure how a person will react to something you have never tried in your entire life. Out of this reason, it is extremely important and even vital to inform your doctor in case any of the side effects arise in the course of the albuterol treatment therapy. The medication in question is known under the name of Salbutamol as well, and this is the drug that is quite often prescribed as a part of the treatment therapy for asthma and obstructive pulmonary disease chronic in nature. It also performs the function of a bronchodilator that has the ability to relax muscles and enhance the amount of air that flows into the person’s lungs.
