For relief of such conditions as bronchospasm in diseases like asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease,Proventil has always proven effective. Administered alongside ipratropiumbromide or pulmozyme, it can be used to treat cystic fibrosis. Similarly, the drug has been proved to yield desirable results when used in trial in spinal muscular-atrophy since it is speculated to modulate alternative splicing of SMN2 gene, which is related to the cause of that complication.
Proventil (albuterol sulfate) is a medication used to prevent and treat shortness of breath and wheezing caused by breathing problems such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, and others. It is mostly used to treat breathing complications caused by exercises. Proventil is a bronchodilator, and it works by opening the breathing passages and relaxing muscles in the airway. It widens airways in the lungs to allow for easy breathing.
Proventil is available in the form of inhalation aerosol and thus its administration as a spray through the mouth. A physician ad should determine the dosage should be done for the duration of minutes until the patient recovers fully.
