For Asthma, Maintenance: I like this medicine better the others. Not too bad as far as side effects!

For Asthma, Maintenance: After taking albuterol (and various brands of albuterol) for years, I got a chance to try Xopenex almost a year ago, and I love it! I used to be scared to take albuterol, because it made me so shaky, even at only half the perscribed dose. But I can take the full dosage of Xopenex prescribed without feeling shaky at all!

For Asthma, Maintenance: I took Mucinex along with Xopenex. I had a terrible feeling for about 6 hours.

For COPD, Acute: Wonderful, wonderful medicine. The only problem is Medicare will not pay the providers for this brand name drug only for generic (which this drug is not). However, because of this the pharmacy will not fill the prescription if you are under Medicare insurance as they will lose money. (It is always about the dollar and not what is best for the patient). Xopenex is a wonderful medicine and I would recommend it to anyone.

For Asthma, Maintenance: It works so much better than albuterol. It doesn't make you choke and there is little or no heart racing after using it.

For Asthma, acute: Provided as an alternative to albuterol as my sons heart beat went very high with albuterol. Very effective.

For COPD, Maintenance: 32yr old female with copd and asthma. After trying several inhalers Xopenex is the best by far for me. Have experienced no side effects and it significantly opens my airways.

For COPD, Acute: I have found this to work better for me than other medications I've used in a nebulizer. I use it four times a day and it helps me breath better. However, I still have to use Proventil HFA between my treatments. That could be because of the severity of my COPD.

For COPD, Acute: I have been using this for two months now and it is very helpful, a lot better than the albuterol solution I had for my nebulizer. This is wonderful. I can actually catch my breath with this and can walk a lot further using it.
