Salbutamol 2mg tablets are a prescription medication used to treat bronchospasm, a condition characterized by narrowing of the airways in the lungs, which can cause difficulty breathing. Salbutamol is a bronchodilator that works by relaxing the muscles in the airways, allowing them to open up and making it easier to breathe.The usual dose of salbutamol tablets for adults is 2mg to 4mg, taken three or four times daily, as needed. The tablets should be swallowed whole with water, and should not be crushed or chewed. The dosage and frequency of administration may vary depending on the patient's age, weight, and overall health.
Possible side effects of salbutamol tablets may include tremors, nervousness, headache, dizziness, and palpitations. More serious side effects, such as chest pain, rapid or irregular heartbeat, and difficulty breathing, may occur in rare cases. Patients taking this medication should be closely monitored by a healthcare professional for any signs of these serious side effects.
Salbutamol tablets should only be used under the supervision of a healthcare professional, as they can interact with other medications and may not be suitable for all patients. Patients should inform their healthcare provider of any other medications they are taking or medical conditions they have before starting treatment with salbutamol tablets.
