Biochem/physiol Actions

Salbutamol is a β2 adrenoceptor agonist with short acting bronchodilation and anti-inflammatory effects. It relaxes the airway smooth muscles and inhibits bronchoconstriction induced by adenosine-5′ -monophosphate (AMP). Salbutamol is particularly effective in treatment of asthma as it provides immediate relief. Salbutamol is one of the most popular short-acting BA (SABA). It is useful in treating the symptoms of EIB (exercise induced bronchospasm).
