What is Albuterol?

Albuterol (also known as salbutamol) is a bronchodilator that relieves cough, wheezing, and trouble breathing by relaxing muscles in the airways and increasing airflow through the bronchial tubes in the lungs. It belongs to a class of medicines known as short-acting beta-agonists (SABA). Albuterol is used to treat wheezing and shortness of breath caused by breathing problems such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It can also be used to prevent bronchospasm caused by exercise. It is approved for use in adults and children who are at least 4 years old. Albuterol is available as a tablet, inhaler, and nebulizer solution.
