Asthmanefrine treats asthma symptoms such as wheezing, difficulty breathing or a tight feeling in the chest, explains Nephron Pharmaceuticals. Consult a doctor if you continue to experience symptoms after 20 minutes or if symptoms get worse after using Asthmanefrine. Also consult a doctor if you experience symptoms more than twice a week or if you use the product nine or more times a day for more than two days in a week. Cease using the product if you experience insomnia, an accelerated heart rate, tremors, seizures or unusually nervous feeling. Avoid consuming foods or beverages with caffeine or supplements with stimulating effects while taking Asthmanefrine.

Store Asthmanefrine away from extreme temperatures and exposure to light and out of the reach of children, cautions Nephron Pharmaceuticals. Contact a poison control center immediately in the event of an overdose.
