Drug name: Albuterol
Generic name: Albuterol
Use: Asthma, COPD, ROAD
Salbutamol is a generic medication used for treatment of asthma. It belongs to the group of drugs called bronchodilators and it works by relaxing the muscles in the airways. This helps to increase airflow in the lungs which reduces the symptoms of asthma and COPD. It is also used in patients who suffer from reversible obstructive airway disease (ROAD), which is similar to asthma and COPD. Albuterol may sometimes be used to prevent exercise induced bronchospasm. Salbutamol is the generic drug and it may be found in other branded medications, such as Combivent, Duoneb and Proair HFA. Albuterol is an extremely common treatment for asthma symptoms, however it cannot treat an asthma attack once it has already begun and only works to prevent future attacks. We currently have brand GSK Albuterol (inhaler 100 mcg/200 dose) and generic Salbutamol (inhaler, Canadian inhaler, solution, solution pack) available in stock.
