I have been on an asthma inhaler since age 12 and it has ruined my teeth. I need major dental work and the companies should be liable as they do not tell you this will happen.

My daughter took albuterol for a number of years. It caused her all of the side effects. Fear, anxiety, restlessness, tremor, insomnia, confusion, irritability, and psychotic states. Appetite reduced.
Nausea and vomiting may occur, including teeth grinding, sleep walking, stuttered speech, and hypotension with dizziness and fainting, and flushing... Due to all these, she has suffered bully by children and teachers at school, as they do not understand her behavious, her inability to cope, her mood changes, her insecurities. I feel so helpless in not being able to help her change all those anxiety feelings. She has had panic attacks as well. She is very patient and tries not to let her fear and anxiety affect her life, and so she holds feelings to the point where she gets panic attacks. I feel so bad for and watching her suffer so many years, has broken me

I've been taking an albutrol inhaler since around 2005 and today I am on oxygen 24/7 I have shortness of breath I have fear anxiety insomnia. Also my quality of life has gone way down and now I see that it could be because of this inhaler that I was prescribed.

this is not right that the doctors to you trust can prescribe you something that would actually destroy you in the end of your life when you should be enjoying your life and retirement and being able to breathe, but in my situation I'm struggling to breathe every day.

I have used Albuterol inhailers since the 4th grade, I am now 44. And I have been I'll. I decided to fight my asthma without the Albuterol....I went through what I call horrible wheezing withdrawals!!! And a couple weeks went by, and I breathing became better, asmore time went by I felt better. Months have passed and I refuse to use the inhailer, and I can sleep and not have to need my inhaler!! I don't ever want to use it again. I have super bad arithmia, and many side effects. And my main point is there is no warning on the label saying the Albuterol is addictive, when it totally is!!! Please help me help others, Albuterol is bad!!!!!

I’ve been using albuterol since 2012 when prescribed initially for an upper respiratory infection and bronchitis. Six months later, when my symptoms hadn’t shown significant improvement, I was diagnosed with asthma and prescribed albuterol every since. Now have almost constant chest and abdominal pain, chronic cough with congestion, high blood pressure, decreased vision, fatigue, anxiety, irritability, and loss of appetite, along with other symptoms I feel are directly linked to this medication. Been unable to work for over 18 months because the “asthma” symptoms have become so debilitating.

I had bronchitis so bad I could hardly breathe. Was give albuterol for five days. I now have vocal cord paralysis. Been 8 days with no voice. Kind of hard to do a lot of things without a voice, like parts of my job, talking to anyone and forget about going through a drive through or talking on the phone. Very, very difficult. Not sure how long this is going to last, but it's been too long already.

In 1994 I filed a lawsuit with Jeffrey Oliveira and Associates located in Merrillville Indiana concerning an albuterol case that i had against Albuterol. My one month old son was given Albuterol and was immediately flown to Riley's children hospital with an enlarged heart. I contact the Jeffrey Oliveira and Associates about my case and they took my case and I was told a settlement was received but I never received any type of payment. How can I find out if any monies are owed to me??

My daughter is experiencing just about all of the side effects. She has asthma and prescribed albuterol many years. over a period of time these side effects have almost destroyed my daughter. People think she is always on illegal drugs because of her high anxiety and she is going to lose her daughter over this. She has been using albuterol on a more frequent basis because of shortness of breath due to high anxiety. I have a story to tell if you want to hear with documentation going back ten years. Lord only knows what cardiovascular damage has been done. She is only thirty five years old. I love her.
