Short description

Albuterol is a bronchodilator and is classified as a beta-2-adrenoreceptor agonist and is routinely used as an asthma medication.

Albuterol is a bronchodilator and is classified as a beta-2-adrenoreceptor agonist and is routinely used as an asthma medication. The drug is most often found in emergency inhalers, but various brands of Albuterol can also be found in tablet form. 

 

The drug stops acute attacks of bronchial asthma and is also used during the treatment of a chronic form of obstructive bronchitis that does not respond well to traditional therapy.

Albuterol contraindications

Before you buy Albuterol inhaler, consult your doctor, the drug has contraindications:

  • allergic reactions;
  • children (under 6 years of age for tablets, under 2 years for oral solution and syrup);
  • tachyarrhythmia;
  • severe CHF;
  • high blood pressure (hypertension);
  • thyroid disorders (e.g., thyrotoxicosis, endemic goiter);
  • pheochromocytoma;
  • various heart diseases (angina, myocardial infarction, myocarditis, heart defects, aortic stenosis, and others)
  • diabetes mellitus;
  • epilepsy (various seizures);
  • gastrointestinal stenosis (pyloroduodenal);
  • thyrotoxicosis.

Albuterol for cough

Albuterol stimulates the cough reflex so that mucus is expelled from the bronchi more quickly. Used to dilate the lumen of the bronchi, it relieves spasms so that the airways are cleared of thick sputum faster and thus coughing attacks are eliminated.

This drug eliminates unpleasant symptoms and improves the general condition during the attack. Albuterol should be used during an asthmatic attack as well as for spastic coughs.

Albuterol interactions

Drugs that may interact with Albuterol:

  1. Blood pressure medications 

People with bronchial asthma should not lower their blood pressure with drugs from the beta-blocker group. Beta-blockers block the effects that Albuterol has on breathing. This results in severe bronchospasm and additional breathing problems in bronchial asthma sufferers. Examples of beta-adrenoblockers:

  • Propranolol;
  • Atenolol;
  • Bisoprolol.

Using other blood pressure medicines, such as diuretics (diuretic tablets) with Albuterol, can cause changes in your heart rate and make your potassium levels lower than normal. If these medicines are prescribed together, your doctor should monitor your potassium levels.

  1. Medications for depression

Co-administration of these medications may significantly increase the cardiac effects of Albuterol. Monoamine oxidase inhibitors and tricyclic antidepressants can enhance the beta-adrenergic effect of Albuterol and can decrease BP very sharply.

  1. Theophylline and other xanthines

 Concomitant use with Albuterol increases the likelihood of tachyarrhythmias; agents for inhalation anesthesia, Levodopa - severe ventricular arrhythmias.

  1. Concomitant use with m-cholinoblockers (including inhaled) may increase intraocular pressure

To avoid interactions, the doctor must carefully monitor and be aware of all medications the patient is taking.

Albuterol overdose

Symptoms of acute intoxication during inhalation use: more frequent - hyperglycemia, hypokalemia, decreased blood pressure (BP), lactoacidosis, tachycardia, muscle tremor, nausea, vomiting; less frequent - agitation, respiratory alkalosis; rare - hallucinations, paranoia, seizures, tachyarrhythmia.

Symptoms of chronic intoxication during inhalation use: more frequent - BP decrease, tachycardia, tremor, vomiting; less frequent - agitation; rare - convulsions, tachyarrhythmia.

Treatment: symptomatic; cardioselective beta1-adrenoblockers are administered for tachycardia. Administration of beta 1-adrenoblockers (selective) in patients with bronchial asthma requires extreme caution because of the risk of bronchospasm. 

Salbutamol vs. Albuterol

Both drugs belong to the same group, bronchodilators. They are used to treating or prevent bronchospasm (constriction of the airways) by opening the airways, which makes breathing easier. They are essentially the same drug. Both drugs contain the same active ingredient Salbutamol.

4-6 hours

 

These medications are often called inhalers or inhalers because they are usually administered by inhalation.

How long does Albuterol work?

The effect of Albuterol develops quickly and lasts 4-5 hours. The maximum speed of action (removal of bronchospasm) is achieved immediately when administered by inhalation.

You can order Albuterol inhaler over-the-counter at the online pharmacy. A prescription from your doctor is already included in the cost of the drug.

Albuterol: side effects in the elderly

In the elderly, the drug is more slowly eliminated from the body and can cause side effects or overdose. This is why Albuterol is not available over-the-counter in most pharmacies.

The usual dose for adults may cause drug levels to be higher than normal. Older people are prescribed a lower dose or a different dosing regimen.

Patients should also pay attention if there are comorbidities:

  • Cardiac diseases: abnormal heart rhythm or high blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Diabetes mellitus: Albuterol general inhaler can increase glucose levels
  • For people with thyroid disorders (hyperthyroidism): Albuterol may worsen thyroid function

Taking high doses of Albuterol during an asthma exacerbation causes each subsequent attack of suffocation to be more intense than the previous one. 

At a severe attack of suffocation, a break between inhalations should be at least 20 minutes. If there is no minimum effect of inhalation or pronounced tremor, tachycardia, heart rhythm disturbances occur, further uncontrolled use of the inhaler is contraindicated and a physician should be consulted. 

The risk of complications increases with both significant duration of treatment and abrupt withdrawal of the drug.
