I use advair twice a day and Xoponex when needed for asthma attacks.
Neither one makes my heart race.

I used to take albuterol for fast acting inhaler, but my cardiologist changed me to the xoponex because it is easier on heart patients.

The inhaled steroids won't cause the heart to race. I have QVAR (beclomethasone) that is a steroid. The quick relief inhalers like albuterol will have an adrenergic effect and cause the heart rate to increase temporarily. My HR increase usually lasts about 15 minutes.

I see that Flovent and Advair are both steroidal inhalers.

I have asthma and take Flovent 2xday and used to take Combivent as needed. My Dr switched me from Combivent to Atrovent. With Atrovent, I find that it doesn't cause my heart to race as much as it did when using the Combivent.
