About Albuterol Sulfate (Generic ProAir RespiClick)

How does it work?

Albuterol Sulfate is a bronchodilator. It works quickly to relax the muscles around the airways in the lungs. This helps open up the airways to make breathing easier.

What does it treat?

Albuterol is used to quickly relieve symptoms like coughing, wheezing, chest tightness and difficulty breathing. It’s used for immediate relief during an asthma attack. It can also be used to prevent breathing problems during exercise. This medicine is also known as a “rescue inhaler.”

What forms does it come in?

Rescue inhalers like ProAir RespiClick deliver medicine directly to the lungs when you breathe in. Albuterol also comes as a liquid that can be used in nebulizer machines.

Albuterol Sulfate vs. ProAir RespiClick

Albuterol Sulfate is the name of the active ingredient in ProAir RespiClick and other rescue inhalers. Active ingredients are what make the medicine work. ProAir RespiClick is the brand name version of this medicine.
