Levalbuterol (Xopenex)

While there is no cure for asthma, the condition can be controlled. One of the treatments available is levalbuterol hydrochloride (Xopenex®), a prescription drug used to treat asthma and other similar lung problems.
 
The medication is typically taken three times a day and is generally well tolerated. It is used in a nebulizer, a device that changes liquid medications into fine droplets that are inhaled into the lungs. Viral infections, runny nose, and shakiness are some of the commonly reported side effects.
