This drug is very effective in relieving my breathing problems from COPD and asthma. It lasts a full 12 hours and I have experienced no side-effects whatsoever. The albuterol solution I used to use in my nebulizer would make me shake and made my heart race. The Perforomist doesn't have this effect at all. As a matter of fact, I don't feel any different after a treatment than I did before the treatment, except that I can breathe normally. Since I've been using Perforomist, (once in the morning)I rarely need my fast acting inhaler during the day. My energy level is up and I can do more physical things (like exercise) without my breathing going bad. It's so nice to feel normal after such a long time. Much thanks to the makers of Perforomist.

I have had better days with my breathing since I started this medicine. I also do not find myself needing my rescue inhaler, although I still keep it just in case.

Initally had burning sensation in back of throat, became very red and irritated. After 5 days of use symptoms worsened, tight chest, severe wheezing and difficulty breathing. I became very concerned with the difficulty I was having trying to breath.

I have not noticed any problems re;my abnormal heart beat. Performomist replaced my old treatments of 4xs daily to just twice and seems to work fine.
