I just got albuterol for my asthma. Would it help at all with my difficulty breathing during panic or anxiety attacks?
I know that a side effect of albuterol is increased heart rate, but my heart rate doesn’t increase much until a couple of minutes after I start to have difficulty breathing.
So, basically, is the difficulty breathing during panic/anxiety attacks caused by (a?) broncospasm?
(I would have asked the consulting pharmacist, but I was having a small panic attack from being around so many people. )
