Common Questions and Answers about Albuterol tremors

I am 25 years old (female). For 3 weeks I have had tremors in my chin. They only happen when my mouth is at rest (they do not happen when I am speaking or chewing). I have been chewing a lot of gum! For the past 2 weeks I have also been having tremors in my left hand, arm and my left leg feels tight. These to are only when I am just sitting still. They go away when I am sleeping. I have also been tired, irritable and feeling like I have to really think about things I am doing sometimes.
I am a Registerred Respiratory Therapist and I see this all the time. The tremors and increased heart rate are a side effect of the Albuterol medication. It is NOT due to anxiety etc..! Overuse of the nebulized or MDI form can increase the symptoms. These two side effects are the only ones I see within the hospital. They do not affect everyone and you may have one side effect without the other, but they are very commen.
The side effects with albuterol would be increased heart beats, tremors, Dry mouth and Cough. Pulmicort can be associated with Headache, Nasal congestion and Mouth sores but less common. I suggest you to consult respiratory physician for further information and management. Take care and regards.
ProAir HFA (albuterol), Zofran (ondansetron) Moderate Drug Interaction MONITOR: Beta-2 adrenergic agonists can cause dose-related prolongation of the QT interval and potassium loss. Theoretically, coadministration with other agents that can prolong the QT interval may result in elevated risk of ventricular arrhythmias, including ventricular tachycardia and torsade de pointes, because of additive arrhythmogenic potential related to their effects on cardiac conduction.
I'm assuming you are referring to a rescue (Albuterol) inhaler. I agree with Victoireh...why would you want to use an inhaler if you don't have asthma? There are no mood altering effects from it whatsoever...if you use it in prescribed doses, it makes you nervous, get hand tremors and maybe a headache. And if you use excessive amounts, which I did when I was first diagnosed with asthma and was only given an Albuterol inhaler, it will make you feel awful...
Albuterol is non-adictive. I tell my patients to use it as prescribed and as needed. As a matter of fact, Albuterol is a relatively benign drug aside from some minor side effects including a slightly elevated heart rate and the jitters. If you have no underlying cardiac disease....don't worry about a thing. In the midst if an asthma attack, I will treat my patients with double and triple treatments at 3-4 times the dosage.
Asthma inhalers/meds especially albuterol are well known to cause tremor or worsen existing tremors as well as muscle twitching. This is also true for steroids and steroid inhalers. If you need the medications for your asthma, you'll have to work something out with your primary care doc to find the optimal dose of medication without significant adverse effects. Drug use of course is your choice, but I can't imagine the marijuana is helping the asthma.
I have essential tremors and I have been taking Klonopin for a very long time along with Baclofen (for the soreness in my neck muscles). I take 2mg 2x a day of Klonopin and 20mg 2x a day of Baclofen. I also take Prozac 40mg every night. My doctor has been talking about putting me on beta-blockers for my tremors, but he won't do so until I can get my asthma under control (he prescribed Dulera inhaler 2x a day & I also have an Albuterol inhaler).
Venteze inhalers contain Salbutamol, which is another name for Albuterol. It is a bronchodilator. It is used to prevent or treat bronchospasm in patients with asthma. It has been used for a long time and is thought to be a safe drug. The most common side effects are tremors and pounding heart rate, both of which are temporary. It is normally given only as needed but some people still use it up to every 4 hours, preventatively.
Does anyone know about sarcoidosis or neurosarcoidosis? Or has your doctor questioned whether or not you may have that instead of MS? I’m wondering if I might have that instead of MS. I scheduled an appt with my neuro for early April to discuss a differential diagnosis with him. It’s on the list for MS mimics. Several reasons why I’m kind of wondering if it is: About 2005 I started going to my doctor for shortness of breath. She thought it might be asthma & gave me albuterol.
I wrote in to this website when my son was 4 years old and started with transient motor tics, right after having two back-to-back illnesses (with a high temperature) and also after being treated with albuterol for severe asthma. His tics have not been as bad as they were the first time he started having them, but are still present at times. He is also growing out of asthma.
the chicken or the egg... I, like Amo, also have MS and get internal tremors. ANd Internal Tremors is one of the sx I deal w/ having MS. At least I thought this is why I get them.....I wonder if it could also be from the AD that we have (mine being NCS). Those with diseases or dysfunctions of their peripheral nerves can present with problems in any of the normal peripheral nerve functions.
On top of that I am taking 250/50 advair (have been taking for 2 years) and albuterol as needed. Thyroid seems fine, B12 levels in normal range but on the low side so I am taking a supplement. I'm wondering if this could possibly be a problem with my adrenal glands and/or pituitary gland? I'm not looking for a diagnosis (but if you have one, I'd be glad to hear it!), I just want to know where to go from here. If you need any more information, I'd be glad to share it.
Where to start? I've dealt with tremors since I was a teenager, but in the last 3-4 years they have become very noticable, to the point of being embarrassing. I find, like many, that alcohol completely aleviates them, but the next day, they come back even worse (I get the shakes as if I were a full-blown alcoholic going through withdrawal.
From your newly diagnosed asthma, I assume you must be on inhalers. Some of them like albuterol can cause fine muscle tremors as well as steroid inhalers and pills. If they are not medicine related, they could be part of a syndrome called benign fasciculation syndrome which is a condition in which you get little twitches or jerks throughout your body that do not lead to anything serious but can be annoying. They are increased wit stress and fatigue.
When I was on the meds (Advair, albuterol, prednisone and doxycycline) I started with neurological symptoms. I felt like something was crawling in my back and I developed musle twitches and weakness. My hands and feet experienced numbness and tingling, sometimes my face would feel numb or my back would tingle. I experienced hot burning sensations going through different parts of my body at different times.
Stimulants can cause fasciculations directly. These include caffeine, pseudoephedrine (Sudafed®), and the asthma bronchodilators albuterol/salbutamol (e.g. Proventil®, Combivent®, Ventolin®). Benzodiazepine withdrawal is another possible factor and then actually most cases don't have a well-identified cause and has therefore been given the title benign fasciculation syndrome (BFS) which I believe is your diagnosis based on the information you gave and the conclusion of your neurologist.

I have NEVER had this experience in my life until after the second time I took Zoloft. The only other medication I am taking is Albuterol and Advair inhalers for my asthma. I am really miserable and not one professional seems to care much less understand what the hell is going on.
I suffer from panic attacks, tremors, seizure-like symptoms, photosensitivity, chest pains, POTS, lightheadedness, head and body electrical surges, tingling, knot pains, spike headaches, body parts going numb, etc. I use a combo. of Lorazepam for the seizure-like symptoms and panic attacks and lightheadedness and Toprol XL for the chest pain and other physical manifestations. The combo work well in sync together to help alleviate my symptoms.

Stiff aches and pains in my neck and shoulders and ankles. slight tremors in legs,hands and arms.(more on the left side) twitches all over my body and times of the day. Constipation and week urine passing. I have been back to the doctor with all these symptoms and he assured me its all anxiety,due to my anxious and neurotic ways i demanded a referal to a neurologist. So last week i went an saw the head proffesor of neurology at one of australia's leading hospitals.
As you can imagine, all 4 doctors and myself are concerned and confused as to this neuropathy that is affecting just the left side of my body, all the symptoms on the right were short lived but the left is not showing any improvement at all. The PA has put me on Neurontin, Prednisone, Ceftin and Albuterol. I have been taking these meds for just 24 hours.
My anxiety symptoms are racing thoughts/worry, tensing, tremors, gnashing my teeth, head ache, chest/throat tightning and insomnia. What can I do? I'm so desperate to feel better. I've also tried Xanax to no effect. I'm at my wits end here. Not contemplating suicide, really, but starting to see it's silver lining..... PLEASE HELP.
Some of these symptoms are not consistent, they vary throughout the month magnitude. I have noticed that about 1-2 days a month most of the symptoms will almost completely vanish and I will feel near 100% normal health. Some symptoms, specifically "brain fog" inability to think clearly appears to be alleviated by taking 50mg of 5-HTP (Hydroxytryptophan) with out B6 supplement 2x a day. I have been using 5-HTP since 8-14-13 it has also improved the quality of sleep.
PLEASE-- if you have any muscle rigidity, tremors, twitching, ANXIETY, depression, AGITATION, mitral value prolpase, heart palpatations, panic attacks, asthma, restless legs, and more-- PLEASE DO A SEARCH FOR YOURSELF ON MAGNESIUM DEFICIENCY. YOU WILL BE AMAZED. you may even find yourself the answer you have been searching for for so long. i cant go into all the important facts on this post-- so PLEASE READ AS MUCH AS YOU CAN ABOUT IT!!!!
The doc told me my infection was not bacterial, so I'd "just have to ride it out" and could be coughing "for weeks". Sometimes the albuterol helps and sometimes, no. A few nights ago when it did not work, my GH wanted to go to the ER - I did not. I went into the shower and blasted the hot water for the steam (RN @ the hospital had told me to do this last week). Thought I would keel over and ended up with my head sticking out my window @ 2am gasping for real air.
It sounds like and is symptomatic of a spontaneous pneumothorax, which caused the deflation of the left lobe of my lung. Has your doctor performed a stethoscopic examination of your lung for rales or rattles in the lower quadrant?
It's almost as if her body figures out the new medicine and/or dosage w/in 12 weeks of changing it. She has had hair loss, very dry skin, some tremors, severe angioedema and hives; other times, she has what seems like hyperthyroidism w/ weight loss, rapid heart beat, etc. No one seems to be able to figure it out. We finally got on the Mayo Clinic waiting list; now upgraded to the scheduling list; say we should be going late this month or early next month.
