  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • All of the symptoms I listed started after I began taking Ambien. I quit taking it after about 2 months. The symptoms have not gone away after 60 days.

  • From this study (6 months ago):

  • my child was diagnosed with asthma at two years old and was prescribed a breathing machine with albuterol sulfate vials and started to gain a tremdous amount of weight. Since he has gotten older he was prescribed the albuterol pump and his weight is still increasing and he is 12 years old now. Then his new doctor said she believes the weight gain was not caused by the steroids from albuterol. My son has had diabetes test, thyroid test and has been to a heart doctor and everything.
