Although most people tolerate albuterol well, it is not suitable for everyone. Before starting treatment with the medication, make sure to talk to your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you may have and any other medications you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements). Possible side effects may include nervousness, headaches, and dizziness.
