Re: shaky and feeling heavy after feeling wheezy

I get shaky after using my albuteral inhaler. It's the albuteral. When I used the albuteral/mix nebulizer I shook like a leaf.

Re: shaky and feeling heavy after feeling wheezy

That's one of Albuterols side effects. I talked to my daughter's doctor about it and she put her on Xopenex, but it only goes in a nebulizer at this point. It is basically Albuterol but it has been altered to remove some of the side effects. My daughter now used Xopenex and she doesn't feel that way after a treatment. You might want to ask you doctor if it's an option for you.

Re: shaky and feeling heavy after feeling wheezy

Xopenex is available in inhaler form? I have it for my nebulizer, and you are right, I don't feel AS shaky afterward. Albuterol doesn't make me very shaky anymore unless it is in the nebulizer or if I am having lots of problems and take my emergency albutrol inhaler more than five times in a given day. I am somewhat "addicted" I believe or at least acclimatized to it.

No, according to my doctor Xopenex is only available for the nebulizer at this time.
