I can't use Albuterol due to rapid HR. Will my Bronchitis and congestion I hear in my chest get better without it? On Prednisone for 5 days.

In brief: Bronchitis

Hello and welcome to HealthTap :) It depends how bad your symptoms are if you don't use the albuterol inhaler? It is also important for us to know if you have COPD, asthma or a viral bronchitis? You can try using the levoalbuterol it has less cardiac side effects.
Thank you
