Albuterol (salbutamol) is the generic ingredient in brand name inhalers such as Proventil HFA, Ventolin HFA, ProAir HFA and ProAir RespiClick.
Albuterol (salbutamol) is a bronchodilator that relaxes muscles in the airways and increases air flow to the lungs. Albuterol (salbutamol) works quickly and is also called a “rescue inhaler”. Albuterol (salbutamol) inhalers are frequently used on an as needed basis versus a regular dosing schedule.
Albuterol (salbutamol) is used to treat or prevent bronchospasm in people with reversible obstructive airway disease. Albuterol (salbutamol) is also used to prevent exercise-induced bronchospasm.
Albuterol (salbutamol) inhalation is for use in adults and children who are at least 4 years old.
Albuterol (salbutamol) inhalation may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
Albuterol and salbutamol are the same medicine. 90mcg of albuterol is equal to 90mcg of salbutamol.
So why are albuterol (salbutamol) inhaler strengths listed as 90mcg in the USA and 100mcg in Canada? The answer is that in the USA, the dose is measured at the mouthpiece at 90mcg albuterol (salbutamol) per actuation. In Canada the dose is measured at the valve at 100mcg albuterol (salbutamol) per actuation.
