It can cause jitters and a boost of energy (at least does in me), so if your child was already energetic then it could make him seem "crazy" when it's in full effect which should be max a 2-4 hours after usage (if his reaction is longer than there may be something else happening). To be honest if you can have him on something else with him acting this way he may feel more comfortable on a different prescription and it sounds like it may give you peace of mind. For me, I'm stuck with albuterol, but take only in emergencies as I'm on other inhalers to keep my asthma from getting out of control.
