Generic Vospire ER is sold under the name Albuterol Sulfate ER tablets and is available in two different strengths (4 mg and 8 mg).

All generic medications must go through certain tests to compare them to brand-name medications. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) then looks at these tests to decide if the generics are equivalent to the brand-name medications and assigns each generic a rating. An "AB" rating means that the FDA has determined that a generic medication is equivalent to a brand-name medication. All of the generic Vospire ER drugs that are currently available have an "AB" rating, meaning they should be equivalent to Vospire ER.
However, generic medications are allowed to have different inactive ingredients than their brand-name versions. These inactive ingredients might include fillers, dyes, or other ingredients that may cause problems for people with allergies or sensitivities.
