In brief: Propranolol

Propranol is a beta nerve blocker. Beta stimulating medications such as albuterol help open the airways.
When the beta nerves are blocked by the propranol this can lead to worsening asthma/breathing problems. Carbimazole treats hyperthyroid, piriton is an antihistamine and ferrous sulfate iron all of which would cause minimal effect on breathing.
