What is ProAir HFA?

ProAir HFA is a medication prescribed to adults and children aged four and over to:

  • Treat and prevent bronchospasms in people with reversible obstructive airway disease, like asthma 
  • Prevent exercise-induced bronchospasms

Bronchospasms are a sudden tightening of the muscles in your airways and lungs. They reduce how much air you can take into your lungs and can make it harder for you to breathe. Asthma is an obstructive lung disease caused by having over-sensitive airways. Inflammation can be triggered easily in the airways, and it can cause the muscles in the airways to tighten. Bronchospasms caused by asthma is often called asthma attacks. Bronchospasms can also be brought on by exercise (exercise-induced bronchospasm), particularly in people with obstructive airway conditions.

ProAir HFA can help treat a bronchospasm if you’re having one and can be taken to prevent them, including before exercise. You inhale ProAir HFA directly into your airways using a ProAir HFA inhaler. It relaxes the muscle tissue in your airways and lungs, opening them up and providing relief from a bronchospasm or making it less likely to happen.

ProAir HFA active ingredients

The active ingredient in ProAir HFA is a beta-blocker called albuterol sulfate. It relaxes the muscles in your airways and lungs that tighten to cause bronchospasms. When you inhale ProAir HFA, molecules of albuterol sulfate attach to the muscle tissue in your lungs and airways. They bind with areas on the surface of the muscle called beta receptors. This causes the receptors to start a chemical process in your muscle tissue that makes it relax. This helps to open up your lungs and airways.

ProAir HFA side effects & ProAir HFA drug interactions

ProAir HFA can cause some common side effects, including:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • A sore throat
  • A runny nose
  • Chest pain
  • A fast heart rate
  • Heart palpitations (your heart feels like it is pounding or racing)
  • Shakiness
  • Nervousness

In some rare instances, ProAir HFA can cause more serious side effects, such as:

  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication
  • A worsening of your bronchospasm (paradoxical bronchospasm)
  • Possible death in people with asthma who use too much ProAir HFA
  • Heart problems, including a fast heart rate and high blood pressure
  • Low potassium levels in your blood
  • Increases in blood sugar

When you take ProAir HFA alongside other medications, sometimes they can interact. When this happens, it can change how ProAir HFA and the other medications work and can make some side effects more likely. Medications that may interact with ProAir HFA include:

  • Any other medicines you inhale
  • Any other asthma medications
  • Any other beta-blocker medications
  • Any diuretics – medications that cause you to urinate more
  • Digoxin, used to treat various heart conditions
  • Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MOAs), used most often as antidepressants
  • Tricyclic antidepressants
