Albuterol, Salbutamol (Ventolin)

Albuterol is a bronchodilator drug, which helps promote easier breathing and improved air flow to the lungs. Albuterol is the generic name of the drug, which is also available under the brand names Salbutamol (sold in Canada) and Ventolin. Albuterol is a common treatment for people with diseases of the airway, including asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Albuterol is a liquid solution that is administered through an inhaler, which allows the medication to be breathed directly into the lungs. Albuterol eases symptoms such as trouble breathing, tightness in the chest, and wheezing by helping the muscles in the airway to relax and widen, allowing more air to pass through to the lungs.

This is my rescue inhaler (Proair). It used to be really effective and I rarely had to use it, now I'm using it the maximum every 4 to 6 hours and doing breathing treatment at night before bed.2/12/2012 at 02:15 PM
