Proventil HFA Inhaler Info
Proventil® HFA (albuterol inhaler) is a medication commonly used for preventing or treating bronchospasms (airway spasms). It is also approved to prevent exercise-induced asthma attacks.
The drug comes in an environmentally friendly albuterol inhaler. The Proventil HFA inhaler can be used either regularly to prevent attacks or on an as-needed basis, such as during an asthma attack.
The medicine is a type of beta agonist that works by stimulating beta receptors in the body, including those on the muscles around airways. This action causes the muscles to relax, which opens up the airways and allows more air to get into and through the lungs.
It is important to talk to your healthcare provider before using the Proventil HFA inhaler if you have high blood pressure, an irregular heart rhythm, an overactive thyroid, or any type of heart disease.
