Albuterol FAQs

Man holding up a bottle of medication and smiling

What is albuterol (Ventolin)?

Albuterol (Ventolin) is a medication designed to help people experiencing bronchospasms or diseases that affect the lungs and airways such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Albuterol helps to treat:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Wheezing
  • Chest tightness
  • Coughing

Albuterol comes in several strengths and forms, including:

  • Aerosol metered-dose inhaler
  • Powder metered-dose inhaler
  • Regular and extended-release tablets
  • Nebulized solution
  • Oral syrup

How does albuterol (Ventolin) work?

Albuterol (Ventolin) is in a class of medications called bronchodilators. Bronchodilators act on the smooth muscles surrounding the bronchi (air passageways) in your lungs, causing them to relax. This opens the air passages wider and allows for easier airflow and breathing. 

Can I get albuterol (Ventolin) online?

To get Albuterol (Ventolin) online, schedule a virtual appointment with a medical provider. If they determine that the medication is right for you, they can write a prescription and send it electronically to your local pharmacy for you to pick up. 

The provider can also discuss other ways to manage or alleviate your symptoms. 

How much does albuterol (Ventolin) cost?

Prices for albuterol (Ventolin) vary depending on the form and strength of the prescription, your insurance, and your pharmacy. The average cost of an albuterol (Ventolin) inhalation aerosol (90 mcg/inh) is around $33 for one inhaler. 

What does albuterol (Ventolin) treat?

Albuterol (Ventolin) treats several lung conditions that cause bronchospasm, wheezing and shortness of breath, including:
