Salbutamol works by relaxing the muscles in the airways. In doing so, the airways open up to let air in, making it easier to breathe.
The medication gets to work immediately as it is directly administered to the lungs using an inhaler device. Salbutamol helps to relieve the symptoms of mild or moderate asthma, and is used in hospital to treat acute asthma attacks. This medication can also be prescribed for regular use as part of your asthma management.
