ok what happens when you use an inhaler like 10 times in a row cause i just did and i feel a little weird...

uh am i going to die lol

Report as

Some people do that to "get high" and it's bad for your heart. If you do it once you'll be okay, but don't do it again. It's addictive.

Do it again and you might stop your heart

It increases your heartbeat, even at four puffs. So it could conceivably cause a heart attack. Medications can be very dangerous if misused.

It'll make your heart race and you'll probably feel jittery for a while. That's not how you're supposed to use an inhaler, btw.

You will get shaky and start to get anxiety after about 4 puffs

After a little bit of research on Google, I came to the conclusion, that you're a nut (said with concern). An overdose of an albuterol inhaler, can be fatal! It can make your heart race, which can lead to a heart attack. Please, if you're in America, you need to contact the poison control center. The telephone number is 1-800-222-1222. If you don't want to tell them who you are, then just ask for information about possible serious side effects, that you could be facing in the next hour or so. Have the inhaler with you, so you can give them the information they are going to need to look it up. And please, PLEASE don't ever do that again.

10 puffs one time is not going to kill her... she'll be just fine.
Report as
Did I say it was going to kill her? I said it can be fatal. There are people that do things one time, and still die.
Report as
She's going to have a bad headache. And she shouldn't do it again. But there's no reason to go overboard here. lol
Some people go through entire inhalers in one day to get high and they live for years still. Sure, it kills them eventually, but not right away.
Report as
Okay, I understand what you mean, but I'm not going overboard. It CAN be fatal the first time. And I never said it was going to kill her. I told her what the research that I did, said. I truly don't care about everybody else that does this every single day st the moment. Right now I'm answering one young ladies question. And if what I say, scares her into never doing it again, then so be it! You seem pretty laxidayzikull about this, and I refuse to take this lightly.
Report as
Chill... I'm just trying to keep her from freaking out. You made it sound like she should take it as a life or death situation when it's not. There's no need to go all nuts and call a hotline. She's okay. She said to herself. There's no reason to get all offended just because I said it's nothing to freak out about... it's just not. She'll be just fine. 10 puffs will not kill you or even seriously harm you. I know this for a fact. Maybe 20 or 30 would be concerning, but 10 will be okay. I don't recommend that she does it again though as it can be addicting and lead to heart problems later on with prolonged use.
Report as
Lackadaisical* if you want to call somebody something, make sure you can spell it. It's not anything to do with "Laxa" but most people think so. It's "LACKA" so 's' sound. Learn how to spell it before you accuse someone of it.
Report as
If for whatever reason my son choose to do this, I would want somebody to take this just as seriously as I am, and tell him the truth. That it can be fatal the first time, not that it will be, but it can be. I'm sure she will be just fine, but if what I said freaked her out a little, good. Let's hope she never does it again.
Report as
No, it's really unlikely that it'll be fatal the first time. That's just being over-protective there. It's like saying someone should go to the hospital because they took 3 aspirin instead of 1. They're going to be juuust fine. lol and it's really a waste of the hotline and the hospital's time... they could be using that time to save someone who really needs the help.
Report as
Wow, and now you need to be personally nasty, how sweet. Thank you so much for pointing out my flaw. FYI...I'm talking into my phone, I said the word and thats what it put up. I didn't even go back and reread it, I assumed it would be right. My bad. You obviously knew exactly what I was talking about. I will say nothing else to you. We obviously have different ways of looking at possible overdoses, and we're never going to a completely agree on something.
Report as
grrrrr! Eevvee, I didn't even bother to look at the name of the person that corrected me. I apologize, I thought it was you at first.
Report as
I think you were the one who was being personally nasty first by calling me a name. And I wasn't the one that corrected you.
Report as
What you're mad that I corrected your bad spelling? I understand you're talking into your phone, but you obviously said it wrong then. If you said it as "Laxa" then it would spell how it did. If you said it at "lacka" it would've spelled it right because its in every phone. I'm just saying that you can't call somebody something if you don't know how to spell/say it. It just makes you look bad.
Report as
I came here to read what you had to say to this girl and I "sadly" found 3 mature persons arguing about stupid stuff making themselves look silly. Thank you rettasangel for your involvement and if I were you and knew anything about this I would have acted the same.
Eve's comment about not using the hotline is pretty tough. She won't die but she needs to understand what she would be feeling.
I do encourage her to call.

However such waste of time picking on and replying is just shameful...
Report as
@muchbetter. humans make misspellings and that's normal. actually I found several grammar mistakes and misspellings in your comments (*"no" s sound* is enough)
didn't you feel like you were wasting your time? If not you could at least have been positive by correcting her instead of being so bulldozing... there's a verse in the bible that says "treat you neighbour the way you'd want him to treat you".. I am certain that, if you thought of this first, you would have replied differently.
btw, I'm writing while with a positive and constructive attitude.
Take care!
Report as
Oh really? Sorry. I was busy while typing that and typed it very quickly. I'll admit I made some mistakes, but none as bad as writing a completely different word. And yes, I do know that (not in that context because I don't believe in the Bible or God), but I do know that. I didn't "bulldoze" it as you had said. I just said that if he/she wants to say something about somebody, he/she should know how to spell it.
Report as
Farahdoumani she consulted the internet and the answer is: it's nothing to worry about. She does not need to tie up the lines on for poison control with this. There are people calling it that are committing suicide or with dying children. She was just fine. There's no reason to over-react. Like I said, that's like taking 3 Asprin, it's not smart but it's not going to do anything serious. I would rather give the girl the honest answer then make her freak out and worry!! If there's not reason to freak out then I'm not going to add fuel to the fire and make her worry. I'm going to calm her down and give her the facts.

the inhaler was just there and idk it felt interesting im cool though

Never, ever do it again.
If you don't need an inhaler and you use one, it can lead to some lung problems because of the chemicals and other things that are in the inhaler's tube/can.
Report as
One day you REALLY might need it and you have drain all the meds for fun!! Did you get the inhaler from a doctor or a friend? Inhalers are purchased with a [rescription and the pharmacy can't reelase another one until it is time per doctor's instruction.

I've done that before, too. It should pass, but let someone around you know just in case. And then next time, if you need the help that much, then use a nebulizer. It works better and lasts longer than and inhaler, and its a little better for you. :3

Never a good idea. You won't die from it this time (most likely), but never ever do it again!

You have basically overdosed. Please tell your parent what you did so they can keep an eye in you. You could conceivably have a heart attack.
