Xopenex for cough

What is everyone's experience with xopenex for coughing? Anyone find it helps them? It works wonders for shortness of breath for me but i'm wondering how it works for coughing. I thought albuterol always made my cough worse.. will xopenex do the same?

Re: Xopenex for cough

Neither Xop. nor alb. are cough medicines. That said, because they open the airways (bronchodilators), sometimes they will "make" people cough more, but that is really just the mucus moving around once it has more room, and that's a good thing.
