In brief: Several

Most bronchodilators are very well tolerated.
The most common side effect would be feeling jittery, feeling one's heart beat faster, some will get anxiety. Review the package insert that came with your medication.

In brief: Bronchodilators

The usual bronchodilators often causes some anxiety or jittery side effects, but a new form has less side effects (xopenex).
Use of corticosteroid inhalers and longer acting bronchodilators is becoming more common to reduce the use, and thus side effects, of the standard bronchodilator albuterol. Other medications are also available to reduce the use of albuterol.
