Were you looking for information on Metaproterenol? Metaproternol is a common misspelling of metaproterenol.
Metaproterenol is no longer available in the United States. The manufacturer of this medication decided to stop making it in order to comply with regulations concerning chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), chemicals that may deplete the ozone layer. The product was rarely used anymore; had it been more popular, the manufacturer probably would have chosen to reformulate it without CFCs, instead of just discontinuing it.
Metaproterenol (Alupent®) is a prescription drug approved to treat bronchospasms due to asthma or COPD. The medication works by opening up the airways so that more air can get into and through the lungs. Metaproterenol can be taken only during an asthma attack or on a regular basis to prevent attacks. In clinical studies, the drug started working within five minutes, and its effects typically lasted for five hours.
