Cough, stuffed nose and loss of voice. On z-pack, albuterol and advair. Very high heart rate. Why?

I am a 21 y.o female who eats a very healthy balanced diet, excerise 5 days a week, do not drink alcohol, I get about 9 hours of sleep each night but I am constantly sick with coughs, runny and stuffy noses, exhaustion, and I lose my voice a lot. I am on a z-pack, albuterol inhaler , Advair , and prednisone but my cough and throat tightness is only getting worse. My typical Reston heart rate is about 40-50 (I am a runner) ad it has been around 110 all day and I have not taken the albuterol. I am not sure what to do anymore

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Albuterol can do this / It is a beta agonist
Salmeterol can do this (component of Advair)
Rarely even Azithromycin (Z-pack) is known to affect the heart...

Discuss with your doctor / he may change or reduce some of them....

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
