ProAir is a prescription drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to prevent or treat bronchospasm in people age 4 or older with reversible obstructive airway disease. ProAir is also indicated to prevent exercise-induced bronchospasm. ProAir may be referred to by its drug name, Albuterol.

ProAir is a short-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (SABA). ProAir is also considered a short-acting bronchodilator. ProAir is believed to work by relaxing and dilating the airways, making it easier to breathe.

How do I take it?
ProAir is taken orally using an inhaler four to six times a day, or 15 to 30 minutes before exercise.

ProAir comes in two forms. ProAir HFA is an aerosol inhaler. ProAir RespiClick is a powder inhaled using the special RespiClick inhaler.
