Salbutamol is used in the treatment of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
How it Works
Salbutamol is also known as a bronchodilator medicine because it dilates (widens) the airways in lungs. Salbutamol works by acting on the beta 2 receptors in the lungs which directly helps in opening up the air passages in the lungs so air can flow into the lungs more freely. Salbutamol helps to relieve the symptoms of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) which can cause coughing, wheezing and feeling breathless.
