Drowsiness is not a common side effect, although I suppose there are some people that have all kinds of oddball effects from medication
. As Tammy2009 stated, proper use of the inhaler
is important. Most people don't use the inhaler properly. Shake it. Exhale completely, Inhale as it is discharged, and hold your breath for several seconds. Commonly Albuterol is prescribed together with a second inhaler of ipratropium bromide HFA. Neither should cause drowsiness, burping or chest pains.
