Yes: It should resolve over today, but you should avoid coffee, smoking, alcohol and other stimulants. Broncho-dilators do have adrenaline-like effects on your nervous system. It is unusual for those effects to last more than a day. Relax as best you can. Then check back with your doctor if you have to.
