He had many pulmonary issues and was prescribed this medication. He has a terrible cough and congestion where he feels rattling in his chest. Can he use the Xopenex for this this? He is on Levaquin and his fevers are starting to fall after being on antibiotics for 48 hours. The coughing is causing soreness in his whole body.
My son has Xopenex from his Bone Marrow Transplant recovery?

Sorry this wasn't answered earlier for you.
Xopenex is a bronchodilator. It works by relaxing muscles in the airways to improve breathing. Constricted airways are often the cause of coughing and may help with your sons symptoms.
If the Xopenex does not help, and the coughing is upsetting him, you should take him back to the doctor.
All the best.
