People who suffer from asthma attacks can benefit from using Proair HFA® (albuterol inhaler), a prescribed medication that comes in the form of an inhaler. The medication works by opening up the airways that can become constricted during an asthma attack. Most people tolerate Proair HFA well; even when side effects occur, they are usually minor. Common ones include an irritated throat, headaches, and a runny nose.
There are a number of medical conditions that you should let your healthcare provider know about prior to taking Proair HFA, such as high blood pressure, a fast heart rate, and an overactive thyroid. Among the factors that can affect the dosage your healthcare provider prescribes are the severity of your asthma or other respiratory problems, other medications you may be taking, and whether you use the medication to treat or prevent asthma attacks.
