heart palpitations

Sometimes I get it, sometimes I don't.
I was taking Ventolin between 1 and 3 times a day for symptoms, and sometimes I'd feel it more than others--At the beginning of taking it, I was really shaky, hyper, and had palpitations regularly.

I guess it just depends on your body when you get it or when you dont. If you're concerned about it, ask your doctor if he or she would consider switching to Xopenex (levalbuterol/levosalbutamol)--it supposedly has less cardiac side effects than salbutamol/albuterol, although I haven't tried it.

Re: does the rapid heartbeat from albuterol go away

For me, it takes about an hour before it goes away .I feel extremely jittery during that period.

As time goes by, they will go away. I've used 2 puffs of albuterol before jogging for about 12 years now. In the beginning, it made me very shaky. Now it doesn't at all.
