Ventolin Dangers

Ventolin HFA® (albuterol inhaler) is a prescription medicine licensed for the treatment and prevention of airway spasms. It comes in an inhaler and can be used either daily to help prevent asthma attacks or only during an attack to relieve symptoms.
Even though most people respond well to Ventolin, dangers associated with this medication should be discussed with your healthcare provider before treatment begins. The drug can have a stimulatory effect on the heart and blood pressure. Prior to using the Ventolin inhaler, be sure to tell your healthcare provider if you have heart disease or high blood pressure.
Some of the most common side effects that have been reported during clinical studies include throat irritation, cough, and muscle or bone pain. While most Ventolin side effects are minor, you should seek medical attention immediately if you develop a fast heart rate, worsening breathing problems, or any signs of an allergic reaction (such as hives or unexplained swelling).
