Common albuterol solution side effects can include shakiness, headaches, and nausea. While many of the side effects of albuterol solution are minor, there are more serious side effects that may require immediate medical attention. Notify your healthcare provider right away if you develop a very fast heart rate, signs of an allergic reaction, or breathing problems that are becoming worse.
Albuterol Solution Side Effects: An IntroductionAs with any medicine, there are possible side effects with albuterol solution. However, not everyone who uses albuterol solution will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate the medication well. When side effects do occur, in most cases they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with albuterol solution. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of albuterol solution side effects with you.)
Common Albuterol Solution Side EffectsAlbuterol solution has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials in which the side effects of a group of people taking the drug are documented and compared to another group not taking the medicine. As a result, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the group not taking the medicine.
In these studies, the most common albuterol solution side effects included:
- Worsening of asthma
- Shakiness (tremors)
- Ear infections
These side effects may not apply to every albuterol solution product, as different albuterol solution products may have different side effects.
