My Mom has COPD

Hello, I'm new here and my Mom is 73 with COPD and is on full time oxygen for the last 2 years. She has been experiencing tremors on the inside and now just over the past 6 to 7 months she has the shakes really bad but only when she's not sitting. Her lung doctor said some steroids can cause this but not the ones she is currently taking: Zenhale (2 puffs twice a day). Spiriva Restimat (2 puffs a day in the morning) and Ventolin (twice a month). The doctors can't seem to figure out what is causing her to shake. Just wondering if anyone else is or has experienced shaking. Thanks Denyse from Canada

Ventolin is known to cause palpitations and shakes.

Ask to try a alternative.


Thank you!


You can overdose on inhalers and that could cause your mum shaking but it sounds like she's getting her inhalers as advised by doc Def a consultation is needed
