High pulse rate: or tachycardia could be caused by Albuterol inhalation. If so, you may change this to Ipratropium and/or inhaled steroids. Please discuss with your provider the side effects of your medications.

In an emerged,inhaled ipratropium and steroids are not effective. Heart rate of 145 that persists is reason enough to go to the ER with or without a breathing problem.
