So how often do I have to take albuterol, prednisolone and aminophylline in order to reduce its side effects on the body.

So how often do I have to take albuterol, prednisolone and aminophylline in order to reduce its side effects on the body.

Not sure t: If you're talking about the "jitteriness" with albuterol and aminophylline, this should diminish the longer you take them but on a routine basis. Prednisone is another story. Water retention, acne, weight gain is common but does not necessarily diminish with time. If it can be switched to a inhaled form, the side effects candiminish dramatically. ...Read more

Can Flovent, advair or albuterol cause severe tingling, prickliness and itchiness? Are these any of the side effects? Thanks

Can Flovent, advair or albuterol cause severe tingling, prickliness and itchiness? Are these any of the side effects? Thanks

Probably not: What you described is more likely hyperventilation syndrome except for the itching. These drugs are more likely to cause tremor and occasionally muscle cramps and not the symptoms you have described. Uncontrolled asthma may cause hyperventilation which may cause the tingling and
"prickliness" sensation. Although allergy to steroid itself has been reported, it it mostly related to contact allergy ...Read more

I am 48 with asthma. I have been getting albuterol neb treatments for years, with no side effects. Sunday, and today my body started itching BAD. Why?

I am 48 with asthma. I have been getting albuterol neb treatments for years, with no side effects. Sunday, and today my body started itching BAD. Why?

Itching: Generalized itching without a rash can be seen with very dry skin, early allergic reactions, diabetes, prickly heat, or overactive thyroid. Allergy to albuterol would be unusual. For now, take an antihistamine like benadryl (causes drowsiness) or claritin (nondrowsy and drink adequate fluids. You may have to try discontinuing albuterol if itch persists. See your physician as needed. ...Read more

I gave my 8 year old his 3 year old brother's albuterol nebulizer for bad cough and it helped, will he have bad side effect? He is sleeping so good

He'll be fine.: Rule #1: never give another child a patient's medications. Rule #2: if you do, let your pediatrician know. Rule #3: don't give the lungs medicine without listening to them first. Ok, now to answer your question, due to his bigger body weight/size, he can handle the little guy's dosing. You could have hit the nail on the head, and surmised correctly that he may have cough-variant asthma. Follow-up. ...Read more
