Salbutamol is a selective β2-adrenergic receptor agonist indicated for the treatment or prophylaxis of bronchospasm. In the reversible airway obstruction due to asthma, chronic bronchitis and emphysema, salbutamol causes short-acting bronchodilation (4 hours).
Salbutamol can be used to relieve the symptoms when they are present and for their prophylaxis in situations that the patient recognizes as precipitating an asthma attack (for example before exertion or unavoidable exposure to an allergen).
Bronchodilators should not be the only maintenance treatment for patients with persistent asthma. In patients with persistent bronchial asthma who do not respond to salbutamol treatment, inhaled corticosteroid therapy is recommended to obtain and maintain control of the condition. In the absence of a prompt or complete response to the administration of salbutamol, it is necessary to request an emergency medical consultation or treatment.
Ventolin nebulizer inhalation solution is indicated in adults, adolescents and children aged 4 to 12 years.

Increased use of β2 – adrenergic agonists may be a sign of worsening bronchial asthma. In this case, it is necessary to reassess the therapeutic scheme and to consider the glucocorticoid association.

In most patients, salbutamol has a duration of action of 4-6 hours. The solution should not be injected or swallowed.
