coughing after taking ventolin

do you cough more after taking ventolin? My 10 month old baby coughs and then weezes. When I give her the ventolin she tends to cough even more. I have stopped giving her the ventolin and she actually seems better without it. Still coughs and weezes a bit in the morning but no as bad as when taking ventolin.

Re: coughing after taking ventolin

I sometimes cough after taking Ventolin. It's a different sort of cough for me though.
I usually have a tight, high pitched sounding cough before I take it, and afterwards I either have a 'normal' sounding cough, or a deeper one that feels like it might actually be doing something to help me

Speak with her doctor, there are alternative bronchodilators such as Xopenex that you may be able to try.

Re: coughing after taking ventolin

My 4 year old son does that too . I always thought it was because of the flovent because often he takes the ventolin a few minutes before the steroid to open up the airways a bit more. What I notice with him is that when he is coughing he has more of a wet junky sound before the ventolin then the cough sounds less productive ... It is always productive sounding when he is in the middle of a flare up however pre-ventolin he opens his mouth wider while coughing almost as though he is trying to get under his cough .
