Stacy Wiegman, PharmD, Pharmacy, answeredIt's possible to have an allergic reaction to albuterol syrup or to other ingredients in this asthma medicine. Signs of an allergy include: hives, a rash, a pounding or irregular heartbeat, swelling of the mouth and throat, tightness in the chest, and trouble breathing. In rare cases, children taking albuterol syrup have developed Stevens-Johnson syndrome, which causes fever, itchiness and aching joints. If you experience any unusual symptoms while taking albuterol syrup, call your doctor or get medical help immediately.
