DR. Kuff (Albuterol (Salbutamol)) Drug Price and Information

Albuterol (Salbutamol) (DR. Kuff) is a short-acting β2-adrenergic receptor agonist, used to prevent and treat wheezing, shortness of breath, coughing, and chest tightness caused by lung diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD); a group of diseases that affect the lungs and airways.
It relaxes the smooth muscles in the airway, which allows air to flow in and out of the lungs more easily.
 Salbutamol has been used in treating acute hyperkalemia on account of its potassium-depleting properties by stimulating potassium inflow in cells.
