Overview Information on Albuterol
Pharmacist Tip
Divide the number of inhalations in your inhaler by the number of inhalations you use daily to find out how many days your inhaler may last.     
Albuterol is a type of prescription medicine called a bronchodilator. Doctors prescribe albuterol to treat asthma and other lung conditions, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Albuterol is known by the brand names AccuNeb®, ProAir® HFA, Proventil® HFA, and Ventolin® HFA.

Doctors prescribe albuterol to prevent and treat wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, and chest tightness caused by diseases that affect the lungs and airways. Albuterol relaxes the muscles that surround the airways, which relaxes and opens air passages to the lungs and makes it easier to breathe.

Albuterol may be used to treat emphysema or chronic bronchitis symptoms. Your doctor may also tell you to use albuterol to prevent breathing problems during exercise.
