I had a really bad reaction to them and I wanted to know how long the drug stays in my system. It's been two weeks tomorrow since I have had any of the drug and I still have symptoms, just not as strong as they were before. Can anyone tell me what to look forward to? How long before I get over this? The bronchitis is gone.
I realize this answer is late ... but may help someone in future. Hopefully your systems have resolved.
It's Half Life after
Oral inhalation is: 3.8–6 hours in healthy adults, 1.7–7.1 hours in patients with asthma.
It takes 5.5 x elimination half life for a medicine to be excreted from ones system. So it should have been out of your system in approximately 39 hours (5.5 x 7.1 hours).
I had very similar effects from albuterol it just takes time it leaves out of some quicker than others but it left me in about a week if this continues then I would contact a doctor (my doctor) I would be sure that every ER and doctor was aware of what happened I don't want any more of that they found one that worked and they have it on the charts in both the ER and doctors office but albuterol no no no I hope I have in some way helped you
