What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

    Frequently Asked Questions about Proair

    What is Proair?

    Proair is a brand name for the medication albuterol. It is a bronchodilator that is used to treat asthma and other respiratory conditions by relaxing the muscles in the airways, making it easier to breathe.

    How does Proair work?

    Proair works by relaxing the smooth muscles in the airways, which helps to widen the bronchial tubes. This allows for increased airflow into the lungs, making it easier for individuals with asthma or related conditions to breathe.

    Is Proair a rescue inhaler?

    Yes, Proair is often used as a rescue inhaler. It provides rapid relief from acute symptoms of asthma, such as shortness of breath and wheezing. It is not intended for long-term asthma control but rather for immediate symptom relief during an asthma attack.

    Can Proair be used for COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)?

    Proair can be prescribed for individuals with COPD to help alleviate bronchospasms and improve airflow. However, the use of Proair for COPD should be determined by a healthcare provider, and the medication may not be suitable for all individuals with COPD.

    How should I use Proair?

    Proair is typically administered as an inhaler. The usual dosage is two inhalations as needed, but you should follow your doctor's specific instructions. Shake the inhaler well before each use and ensure proper inhalation technique for maximum effectiveness.

    Are there any side effects associated with Proair?

    Common side effects of Proair may include nervousness, shakiness, headache, rapid heart rate, and increased blood pressure. Less common side effects may include chest pain and irregular heartbeat. If you experience severe side effects, seek medical attention.

    Can children use Proair?

    Proair can be prescribed for children, but the dosage and use should be determined by a healthcare provider, especially for younger children. It is essential for parents or caregivers to understand and assist with proper inhalation technique for children.

    Is Proair safe during pregnancy or while breastfeeding?

    It's crucial to discuss the use of Proair with your healthcare provider if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. They can assess the potential risks and benefits and recommend appropriate treatment options.

    How should I store Proair inhalers?

    Proair inhalers should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture, heat, and direct sunlight. Do not puncture the canister or expose it to high temperatures, as it may affect the effectiveness of the medication.

    Can Proair be used as a long-term asthma controller?

    Proair is primarily intended for short-term relief of asthma symptoms during acute attacks. For long-term asthma control, your healthcare provider may prescribe other medications, such as inhaled corticosteroids or long-acting bronchodilators.
