ACTIONS AND USES:
Salbutamol is a directly acting sympathomimetic amine with actions similar to those described under isoprenaline Sulfate. Its main action, however, is on the adrenergic receptors in the bronchi and the respiratory tract rather than on the cardiac receptors. For this reason, it induces bronchodilation and inhibits brochospasm in doses which do not produce marked cardiac acceleration. It is used in the treatment of asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and other bronchopulmonary disorders involving bronchospasm.
Palpitation and tachycardia may occur in some patients.
PRECAUTIONS AND CONTRAINDICATIONS:
It is contraindicated in patients with hypertension, myocardial insufficiency, and hyperthyroidism. The excessive use of sprays containing salbutamol should be avoided as it may lead to fatal results. Salbutamol should not be administered with non-selective beta-adrenoreceptor blocking drugs such as propranolol or exprenolol.
