Albuterol makes my heart race and I don't like it, what else can I ask my doctor about?

In brief: Xopenex (levalbuterol)

Xopenex (levalbuterol) (pronounced zoh-punex) is used as a 'rescue inhaler' like albuterol, supposedly with less side effects you describe.
My personal observation is that this is not 100% accurate, but it might be worth a try. Ask your doctor.
