How soon after taking Xopenex should my symptoms improve?

Xopenex should help relieve your symptoms shortly after you take a dose by relaxing the muscles in the airways.

If your symptoms worsen when taking Xopenex, or if you find you need to take more than the prescribed doses during the day to breathe clearly, contact your doctor.
