Pirbuterol Reactions to Watch For

Common Side Effects of Pirbuterol

Pirbuterol has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occur in a group of people taking the drug are documented and are then compared to side effects that occur in another group of people not taking the medicine. This way, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the group not taking the medicine.
In these studies, the most common pirbuterol side effects included:
  • Nervousness -- in up to 6.9 percent of people
  • Shakiness (tremors) -- up to 6 percent
  • Headaches -- up to 2 percent
  • Nausea -- up to 1.7 percent
