Asthma first became worse and then I became unable to move for about 12 hours. Terrible experience and couldn't call 911, couldn't do anything. Sure I came close to death.Perhaps this medication needs review, at least for me it was the most dangerous asthma medication I have ever encountered.

My 3 year old daughter has been on this medication as needed since she was 9 months old. She recently had an asthma flare and we began treatments 2-3 times a day, as prescribed by the doctor. The treatments do help with the asthma symptoms. Within minutes she is breathing much better and less coughing however the side effects aren't great. She gets very hyper and out of sorts.
