I was diagnosed with bronchitis/pneumonia and was given albuterol and an antibiotic. I have reacted badly to the albuterol, bad shakes, insomnia and the worst is the swollen saliva glands and dry mouth. I have bought biotene products which provide short term relief. But I am really wondering how long this will last? I am also recovering from nasal surgeory and really need sleep.

Sorry this question has not been answered earlier for you. Dry mouth is a common complaint from those using albuterol.
Try and give it a couple of weeks. Hopefully your body will adjust to the albuterol and your dry mouth will go away. If it does not go away and is really bothering you see your doctor again. You may need to try another medicine.
All the best.
