Why does my heart feel like it's pounding after using my inhaler?
inhaler type: respigen + i use the spacer chamber thing
i also feel kinda shaky afterwards. note: I don't think i have real asthma, just mild asthmatic symptoms. i have a cold rn so it's making it worse, but i never have asthma attacks or anything like that

Its one of the common side effects of that particular medication. If it concerns you, talk to the prescribing physician to explore other options.

That is one of the effects of albuterol, the medication in your inhaler, its a beta agonist and it works on the heart as well. The effects are very short acting (on the heart)

It happens to most of us, it's a common side affect. I get it.
