Albuterol sulphate is bronchodilator, which relaxes muscles in the airways called bronchial muscles. It is used as inhalation to treat or prevent bronchospasm in individuals with reversible obstructive disease of the airways like asthma or asthmatic bronchitis. It is also used to prevent or treat exercise induced bronchospasm.
It is important to keep albuterol handy at all times. Keep the albuterol inhaler in safe and cool place. Don't store in a hot place. An increased need of the medicine is an early indication of serious asthma attack. So inform your clinician about it since an overdose can prove to be harmful.
