Customer Question
My four year old was...
My four year old was seen earlier today for cough. He was prescribed alburerol inhaler which I have given- 2 times. He woke up saying he was cold and was shivering but he did not feel cold or have a fever. He fell back asleep and is wheezing. The shivering stemmed strange and scared me. Is this a side effect of the rx or should I be concerned that something else might be going on that would cause this? Thank you

Epsom salt is not to be taken internally and sodium phosphate is much too strong for your average constipation.

So. To answer your question:

Neither of them is for constipation.

Try some exlax.

Does this make sense to you?

Hello, This is in response to what happened after albuterol inhalation. May be there was a side effect, this drug may cause tremors and cause rise in sympathetic nervous activity causing cold feeling. You could wait few hours and this likely will subside. Please use some benadryl.

Please report this to your pediatrician if it persists.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
