When you take the normal dose, side effects are usually uncommon and mild. hey usually occur if you take the larger dose by puffing twice rather than four times a day. The most common effects include coughing fits, headache, sore throat, dry mouth and hoarseness. Less common effects include a slight nosebleed, constipation and trouble sleeping. After prolonged use, high blood pressure can sometimes occur in the eyes and potentially trigger glaucoma. If this happens, stop taking your medications and contact your doctor. In children, there's also the possibility of a very slight reduction in growth by about an inch on average, but no other unique side effects exist.
Unneeded medications should be disposed of in special ways to ensure that pets, children, and other people cannot consume them. However, you should not flush this medication down the toilet. Instead, the best way to dispose of your medication is through a medicine take-back program. Talk to your pharmacist or contact your local garbage/recycling department to learn about take-back programs in your community. See the FDA's Safe Disposal of Medicines website ( http:///c4Rm4p ) for more information if you do not have access to a take-back program.
