Do bronchodilators effect your pottasium?

Which bronchodilators are you referring to?
The Saunders Nursing Drug Handbook lists no effect on potassium on, for example, albuterol.
Name the bronchodilator you are interested in & I'll look it up & tell you.
(Lasix, which is a diuretic, does rob potassium. Lisinopril, an ACE inhibitor for reducing BP, does increase potassium. I am not familiar with any bronchodilators having an effect on K+.)Source(s): Saunders Nursing Drug Handbook

Not if used correctly, but overuse can deplete potassium levels and cause heart attacks. This is really something you should be discussing with your GP,
