Who should not use Maxair?

Maxair (pirbuterol inhalation) may not be appropriate for people who have diabetes, epilepsy or seizure disorders, glaucoma, heart disease, high blood pressure, kidney and liver disease or an overactive thyroid. It may still be possible for these people to use Maxair, but close monitoring and a dose adjustment may be necessary. Anyone with a known allergy to the ingredients in Maxair should not take it. Maxair should not be given to children under 12 years of age. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, talk to your doctor before using Maxair because it is unclear if it can harm an unborn or nursing baby.
