Several: Flovent use may cause "thrush" to develop in the mouth and throat, causing difficulty swallowing. Rinse the mouth after use. Albuterol may cause a rapid heart rate, nervousness, or irritability. It is used to open up the airway. Do not stop using any of these medications without speaking to the medical provider who gave them to you to use on your child.
