Hello Sisters5258, & welcome to the site. Not sure what you mean about immune system in your question, but here is the warnings :

Albuterol inhalation side effects

Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction to albuterol: hives; difficult breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.

Call your doctor at once if you have a serious side effect such as:

bronchospasm (wheezing, chest tightness, trouble breathing), especially after starting a new canister of this medicine;


chest pain and fast, pounding, or uneven heart beats;


tremor, nervousness;


low potassium (confusion, uneven heart rate, extreme thirst, increased urination, leg discomfort, muscle weakness or limp feeling); or


dangerously high blood pressure (severe headache, blurred vision, buzzing in your ears, anxiety, confusion, chest pain, shortness of breath, uneven heartbeats, seizure).

Less serious albuterol side effects may include:

headache, dizziness;


sleep problems (insomnia);


cough, hoarseness, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose;
