My son was wheezing this morning so I sent him with my mother to the pediatrician (I had to go to work). The doctor says he doesn't have asthma but still prescribed some albuterol (1/2 teaspoon 3 times a day). She said my son isn't even wheezing with every breath and she could have even been persuaded to not prescribe any medication at all. I just called the pharmacist and he said a side effect of Albuterol is hyperactivity. Great, just what I need for my already over active, cooped up, cabin fevered 2 year old. I'm debating whether he should even be given the medicine at all. Anyone have any experience with this?
