Expected: LABAs (Long Acting Beta Agonists) can produce those side effects in some patients, if making your asthma symptoms worse, please stop taking them and talk to your doctor, at times they lead to paradoxical bronchospasm rather than dilatation, and should not to be used during an asthma attack, take care
