Albuterol Profile:

Albuterol is used for treating breathing problems in patients who have asthma or certain other airway diseases. Albuterol may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Albuterol is a sympathomimetic (beta agonist) bronchodilator. It works by relaxing the smooth muscle in the airway, which allows air to flow in and out of the lungs more easily.

Use Albuterol only as directed. Do not use more of it and do not use it more often than recommended on the label, unless otherwise directed by your doctor . Using the medicine more often may increase the chance of serious unwanted effects. Deaths have occurred when too much inhalation bronchodilator medicine was used.

Keep the spray away from your eyes because it may cause irritation.

When you use the inhaler for the first time, or if you have not used it in a while, the inhaler may not deliver the right amount of medicine with the first puff. Therefore, before using the inhaler, you may have to test or prime it.

To test or prime the inhaler:

Insert the medicine container (canister) firmly into the clean mouthpiece according to the manufacturer's directions. Check to make sure it is placed properly into the mouthpiece.

Take the cap off the mouthpiece and shake the inhaler three or four times.

Hold the inhaler well away from you at arm's length and press the top of the canister, spraying the medicine into the air two times. The inhaler will now be ready to provide the right amount of medicine when you use it.

To use most inhalers:

Using your thumb and one or two fingers, hold the inhaler upright, with the mouthpiece end down and pointing toward you.

Take the cap off the mouthpiece. Check the mouthpiece to make sure it is clear. Then, gently shake the inhaler three or four times.

Breathe out slowly to the end of a normal breath.

Use the inhalation method recommended by your doctor:

Open-mouth method — Place the mouthpiece about 1 to 2 inches (2 finger widths) in front of your widely opened mouth. Make sure the inhaler is aimed into your mouth so the spray does not hit the roof of your mouth or your tongue.

Closed-mouth method — Place the mouthpiece in your mouth between your teeth and over your tongue with your lips closed tightly around it. Make sure your tongue or teeth are not blocking the opening.

Start to breathe in slowly through your mouth. At the same time, press the top of the canister one time to get 1 puff of medicine. Continue to breathe in slowly for 3 to 5 seconds. Count the seconds while breathing in. It is important to press the canister and breathe in slowly at the same time so the medicine gets into your lungs. This step may be difficult at first. If you are using the closed-mouth method and you see a fine mist coming from your mouth or nose, the inhaler is not being used correctly.

Hold your breath as long as you can up to 10 seconds. This gives the medicine time to settle into your airways and lungs.

Take the mouthpiece away from your mouth and breathe out slowly.

If your doctor has told you to inhale more than 1 puff of medicine at each dose, gently shake the inhaler again and take the next puff following exactly the same steps you used for the first puff. Press the canister one time for each puff of medicine.

When you are done, wipe off the mouthpiece and replace the cap.

Albuterol Dosing:

The dose of these medicines will be different for different patients. Follow your doctor's orders or the directions on the label. The following information includes only the average doses of these medicines. If your dose is different, do not change it unless your doctor tells you to do so.

The number of inhalations or the amount of medicine that you use depends on the strength of the medicine. Also, the number of doses you take each day, the time allowed between doses, and the length of time you take the medicine depend on the medical problem for which you are taking the adrenergic bronchodilator.

For preventing or treating bronchospasm:

Adults and children 4 years of age and older — 1 to 2 inhalations (puffs) every four to six hours.

Children up to 4 years of age — Dose must be determined by your doctor.

For preventing bronchospasm caused by exercise:

Adults and children 4 years of age and older — 2 inhalations (puffs) taken fifteen minutes before you start to exercise.

Children up to 4 years of age — Dose must be determined by your doctor.

Missed dose of Albuterol:

If you are using one of these medicines regularly and you miss a dose, use it as soon as possible. Then use any remaining doses for that day at regularly spaced intervals. Do not double doses.
