Hi welcome to HCM. Asthalin or salbutamol can increase the heart rate. When used as inhaler the ill effects are almost 60% less as compared to when it is given orally as a syrup or tablet. Flohale contains steroid . Corticosteroids can lead to fluid retention in body, increase in blood pressure, and precipitation of Diabetes if used for long. But again these problems are almost negligible when used as inhaler. Ideally, Flohale should be used daily as a preventive and Asthalin used only when symptoms are severe or before exercise or dust exposure when an attack can be expected. Hope this satisfactorily answers your query. Regards
