Albuterol belongs to a group of medications known as bronchodilators, which are utilized to prevent and manage symptoms such as wheezing, chest tightness, coughing, and difficulty breathing caused by lung diseases like asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This medication operates by relaxing and widening the air passages to the lungs, which helps to facilitate breathing.

Uses and Dosage

Albuterol is available in different forms: as a liquid solution for inhalation via a jet nebulizer, and as an aerosol or powder for inhalation using an inhaler. When used to manage lung disease symptoms, the inhalation aerosol or powder is typically used every 4 to 6 hours as needed. For preventing breathing difficulty during exercise, it’s usually administered 15 to 30 minutes before exercise. The nebulizer solution is generally used three or four times daily. Follow your prescription label diligently and seek clarification from your doctor or pharmacist regarding any uncertainties.

Use albuterol precisely as instructed—avoid exceeding or reducing the dosage or frequency without medical advice.

Contact your doctor if your symptoms worsen or if you feel albuterol inhalation isn’t effectively controlling your symptoms anymore. Should you find yourself needing to use the medication more frequently than usual, notify your doctor.

Albuterol manages symptoms of asthma and lung diseases but doesn’t cure them. Do not discontinue albuterol without consulting your doctor.

The number of inhalations provided by each albuterol aerosol inhaler varies (either 60 or 200). The powder inhaler is designed for 200 inhalations. After reaching the specified number of inhalations, subsequent ones may not contain the correct medication dose. Dispose of the aerosol inhaler after reaching the labeled number of inhalations, even if liquid remains. For the powder inhaler, discard it 13 months after opening the foil wrapper, upon reaching the expiration date, or after the labeled number of inhalations, whichever comes first.

Some inhalers come with an attached counter to track usage. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions regarding its use and refrain from altering or removing the counter.

If your inhaler lacks an attached counter, monitor your usage manually. Avoid submerging the canister in water to check medication levels.

The inhaler provided with albuterol aerosol is meant solely for use with albuterol. Never use it for inhaling other medications, and don’t substitute it with another inhaler for albuterol.

Take care to prevent albuterol inhalation from reaching your eyes.

Avoid using your albuterol inhaler near flames or heat sources, as it may explode under very high temperatures.

Before initial use of the albuterol inhaler or jet nebulizer, carefully read the provided instructions and seek demonstration from your healthcare provider.

If your child will be using the inhaler, ensure they understand its proper usage. Supervise each use to confirm correct administration.
