Type of medicine Bronchodilator (a short-acting beta2 agonist) Used for Asthma and other airways-related problems Also called Accuneb®; ProAir HFA®; ProAir Respiclick®; Proventil HFA®; Ventolin HFA®; Available as Inhalation aerosol; dry powder inhaler; nebulizer solution Albuterol (also known as salbutamol) is called a bronchodilator medicine because it widens (dilates) your airways. It works by opening up the air passages in your lungs so that air can flow into your lungs more freely. This helps to relieve symptoms of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) such as coughing, wheezing and feeling breathless. It starts to work within a few minutes and the effect will last between 3-5 hours. Albuterol inhalers are often referred to as 'rescue' or ‘quick-relief’ medicines. This is because they relieve symptoms of breathlessness quickly. Although they relieve breathlessness, they do not prevent the breathlessness from happening. The colour and style of your inhaler device will depend on the brand your physician has prescribed; make sure you receive the same brand each time you collect your medicine. Ask your pharmacist if you are unsure.Before using your inhaler, read the manufacturer's printed information leaflet from inside the pack.

Smoking causes irritation and damage to the lungs, and will make your condition worse.
