Generic Albuterol (Ventolin 100 mcg) guide:
What is a medication called Albuterol?
Albuterol is nothing more than a brand name under which the medication known internationally as Salbutamol is marketed. There are numerous names for the same medication because it is made by various drug manufacturers. The formula of the medication is known since 1966. Then, when the medication was first patented and approved for the medical use, it was manufactured by a single company who owned the exclusive rights. However, later they lost the exclusive rights for the formula use because the patent expired. Therefore, currently, the preparation is made and marketed by other companies from around the world. It can be found under the names Ventolin, Salbutamol, Accuneb, ProAir HFA, Proventil, Proventil HFA, Ventolin HFA, Asthalin HFA, and so on.
The medication is included in the group of bronchodilating drugs of the selective 2-adrenergic receptor agonists group. It is a quick-acting medication that is used when an asthma attack has already started and cannot be used for the attacks prevention as its effect isn’t lasting. Your healthcare provider can tell you to buy Albuterol if you suffer from asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, as well as chronic bronchitis. The medication is available in a form of inhaler, powder, or pills for oral intakes. Before you purchase the medication, you must clarify with your physician which form is the most suitable for your case.
The active substance of the preparation improves sputum discharge, stimulates the production of mucus, activates the functions of the ciliary epithelium of the bronchi, stops the ejection of inflammatory mediators from mast cells and basophils, and precludes the development of allergic bronchospasm.
What is Generic Albuterol and why is it cheaper than the branded medication?
We have already mentioned that the same medication can be found under a variety of names. Although all of these names are official and registered, collectively the medicines identical to Albuterol are referred to as Generic Albuterol. This term is denizen by the World Health Organization to identify the medicines with the same composition as the branded drugs but made by other pharmaceutical enterprises. These medications’ creation has the goal to make all modern medications affordable to anyone regardless of the level of income. Branded medicines are commonly very expensive and not everyone can afford them even in the rich developed countries. Therefore, more and more people buy Generic Albuterol instead. If you need this medication, you should not worry about its quality and effectiveness. It is absolutely the same as the branded drug. It is cheaper because its manufacturer didn’t spend money on the research and markets the medication mostly in the developing countries.
