Generic Proventil (Albuterol 100 mcg) guide:
What is Proventil?
Proventil is probably one of the most known names of anti-asthma medications. It is a brand name registered by an American pharmaceutical company Schering-Plough for an aerosol inhaler based on the active substance Albuterol. Albuterol is a beta 2 adrenergic receptor stimulant that dilates the bronchi and reduces the bronchospasm in such conditions as asthma, bronchitis, obstructive lung disease, and emphysema of the lungs. The preparation is manufactured and sold by numerous pharmaceutical companies as it is not protected by the exclusive patent. Therefore, you can purchase a cheaper medication from a different company with the same effect when your physician appoints you to buy Proventil.
The medication is produced in different forms. It can be used in a form of intravenous infusions, syrup, tablets, coated tablets, prolonged-release tablets, sustained-release tablets, and inhalers. Other forms of the preparation such as infusions are used in gynecology to prevent premature labor or hyperactivity of the uterus in pregnant women to avoid miscarriage.
As a bronchodilator, i.e. the substance that expands the bronchi when they are spasmodic, for instance, in an acute episode of asthma, the medication renders its effect through the stimulation of beta type two adrenergic receptors and blood vessels. It also suppresses the histamine, i.e. allergy receptors and inhibits the reaction of bronchi to an allergen. Besides, it also facilitates the coughing out of sputum.
The medication also plays a role in metabolic processes within the body which is why it is important to take into account all other conditions and diseases you suffer from when you start using Proventil. For instance, the preparation reduces the concentration of potassium in the blood plasma, affects glycogenolysis and the release of insulin. In patients with bronchial asthma, it can increase blood sugar and accelerate the breakdown of fat, which increases the risk of lactic acidosis.
What is Generic Proventil?
Generic Proventil is a collective term used for all medications identical to the branded medication Proventil made by other companies. This term is used to relieve you from the necessity to remember all other names under which the medication is registered when you want to get the medication cheaper. The cheaper price of the so-called generic is due to the lack of research costs as the manufacturers of the medications use the formula that had been previously developed by another company. They also choose not to widely advertise their medicines and sell them in the countries where there is no monopoly of large brands.
You should not be scared to buy Generic Proventil. Its cheaper price doesn’t indicate the lower quality. As we have already explained, it is due to other factors. On top of that, the medications marketed as generics are comprehensively tested and released onto the market only if they correspond to the original formula, safety standards, and efficacy. We sell the medication made by the known generic-drug making company Cipla that has a well-established reputation around the world. We recommend you not to look further for a cheaper price as you may end up buying an inferior medication, a placebo, or an expired inhaler which won’t be effective. We set the most reasonable prices for the highest quality medications as we value our reputation.
