Information on Albuterol Tablets
Many people use an inhaler or a nebulizer to take albuterol, a medication used to treat airway spasms due to asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). However, the medication can also be taken orally, such as with albuterol tablets. These tablets are approved for use in adults and children age six and older.
Short-acting albuterol tablets are usually taken three or four times per day, while extended-release albuterol tablets are usually taken twice daily. Both forms are available in brand-name and generic form.
To help ensure a safe treatment process with albuterol tablets, your healthcare provider needs complete information on your medical history, including any other conditions you may have and if you are taking any other medications, including vitamins or supplements. This will help him or her decide if this product is right for you.
