It may be that your asthma or COPD is getting worse and your doctor might need to give you another medicine. The same applies if you are taking terbutaline by mouth or nebuliser and it doesn't seem to be working as well.
  • It is recommended that people with diabetes should monitor their blood sugar more carefully when starting treatment with this medicine, as it may increase blood sugar levels. If your diabetes treatment becomes less effective, i.e. your blood sugar levels are harder to control, you should consult your doctor.
