When I used to take albuterol treatments from my nebulizer, I would get the worst head rushes. Now, with this drug, I rarely even get a minor headrush. I totally recommend this to anyone who has to us a nebulizer.

NO metered dose counter available for this drug. With 200 potential actuations per container, plus a requirement to prime 4 times if unused for 3 days or more, how is a patient supposed to keep track of remaining doses? SHOULD COME WITH A DOSE COUNTER!

I started using Xopenex (Levalbuterol Tartrate) in 2013 instead of albuterol. My asthma attacks are usually during a cold morning. Albuterol would take 2 hours before the wheezing would stop. After breathing in 2 puffs of Xopenex, I could take a deep breath 20 to 30 minutes later. I was amazed! I read to wait a minute before taking any maintenance medicine. I recommend waiting 30 to 45 minutes. If I take it too soon, I get the feeling of bugs on my skin. Albuterol costs between $5 and $30. Levalbuterol Tartrate costs between $65 and $95, well worth the cost of breathing quickly. Read More Read Less
