Albuterol and your airways

Albuterol relaxes the muscles around your airways

When you have an asthma attack or bronchospasm in your airways, the muscles around your airways tighten, making it harder to breathe.

Albuterol relaxes the muscles around the airways and lets more air flow through. Albuterol generally acts within approximately 5 minutes after it has been inhaled.

Albuterol is what's known as a short-acting beta2-agonist, or SABA. SABAs are a recommended treatment for relieving the sudden symptoms of asthma, and for preventing exercise-induced bronchospasm (EIB). They are also recommended for treating COPD episodes.

When you are having an attack, the ProAir® RespiClick (albuterol sulfate) Inhalation Powder rescue inhaler delivers a measured dose of albuterol. One CLICK with ProAir® RespiClick, and you know the medicine is ready.
