Albuterol

More popularly known as Salbutamol, and prescribed under the brand name Ventolin, Albuterol is a medication is a short-acting bronchodilator, which opens up the medium and large airways, preventing bronchial spasms in patients who experience lung conditions such as bronchitis, emphysema, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and is most widely prescribed as a short-term relief for people with symptoms of asthma.

Many medications are taken in the form of an inhaler, and Albuterol is the most common medication found in inhalers, with over 60 million prescriptions in the United States. Albuterol inhalers are recommended for use in adults and children at least 4 years old.

What Is Albuterol Prescribed For?

Doctors prescribe Albuterol as a short and long-term treatment for patients that experience lung diseases like bronchitis and asthma who experience what is known as bronchospasms, which happen when the muscles that line the airways in your lungs (the bronchi) tighten. This tightening results in wheezing, coughing, and other symptoms. Albuterol can also be used to prevent bronchospasms brought on by exercise as opposed to people who only experience long-term lung conditions. Albuterol can be taken with a metered dose inhaler, such as a ProAir HFA or Proventil, and can be inhaled with a device called a nebulizer, or it can be taken in pill or liquid form.

How Does Albuterol Work?

Albuterol belongs to the family of medicines known as adrenergic bronchodilators, which are medicines that are breathed in through the mouth, and open up the bronchial tubes in the lungs, commonly known as the air passages. Albuterol works by relaxing the smooth muscles in the airways and reducing the tightness of these muscles, providing relief from asthma attacks or breathing problems brought on by external triggers like exercise or impure air. After being taken in inhaler or pill form, symptoms should be improved in the space of a few minutes and the effects can last between 4 and 6 hours.

What Are the Side Effects of Albuterol?

As with any form of medicine, there can be side effects. Some of the most common side effects of Albuterol may include the following: 

  • Dizziness
  • Feeling nervous or shaky
  • Upset stomach
  • Vomiting
  • Irritations in the chest, such as chest pain or a fast heartbeat
  • Experiencing pain when urinating
  • Headaches, back pain, or body aches
  • Sore throats, coughs, sinus pains, or a runny and stuffy nose
  • Potential to raise blood pressure

Other symptoms that are rarely occurring but are worth noting include:

  • Hypotension, known as low blood pressure
  • Allergic reactions such as hives
  • Angioedema, which is an area of swelling that may occur in the face, tongue, abdomen, larynx, or arms and legs

There can also be reactions based on signs of low potassium, including irregular heartbeat, constipation, leg cramps, increased urination, tingling, and muscle weakness.

Frequently asked questions

  • Albuterol is the most common medication used in inhaler form. Because it is not available as an over-the-counter medication in the United States, it is only available by prescription. Therefore, only a doctor can prescribe Albuterol for people experiencing symptoms associated with lung conditions.

  • As Albuterol is a prescribed medication, it can only be prescribed by a medical professional and can be prescribed online.

  • Albuterol is commonly prescribed in the form of either a tablet or an inhaler. It is taken through the mouth, either orally or inhaled. When prescribed Albuterol in inhaler form, people are advised to conduct a proper breathing technique to ensure the medication enters the lungs effectively. You should open the mouth and breathe in slowly and deeply before pressing down on top of the canister on the inhaler, and holding the breath for approximately 10 seconds to let the medication penetrate into the lungs before breathing out slowly.

  • Albuterol can interact with some of the following medicines: 

    • Other inhaled medicines or bronchodilators
    • Diuretics or water pills
    • Beta-blockers such as atenolol, propranolol, labetalol, and sotalol
    • Antidepressants such as amitriptyline, doxepin, desipramine, imipramine, nortriptyline, and MAO inhibitors

  • Doctors will prescribe Albuterol differently according to the individual needs of the patient. The amount of medicine and the dose will depend on the strength of the medicine. For treatment or prevention of bronchospasm, adults and children over 4 are recommended to take 2 puffs every 4 to 6 hours. To prevent symptoms of exercise-induced asthma, adults and children over the age of 4 will be advised to take two puffs 15 to 30 minutes before exercising.

  • To get an online prescription for Albuterol you will have to set up an account with us, download the DrHouse app and make an on-demand visit with one of our board-certified clinicians.
