How does Asthalin work?

This reduces bronchospasm (contraction or the airways) and allows the airways to open making it easier to breathe and removing symptoms of asthma, such as tightness of the chest, wheezing, cough and shortness of breath. Salbutamol in Asthalin nebules is a rapid-acting bronchodilator but has a short duration of action, lasting 4-6 hours and is used as a reliever medication for severe asthma, delivered into the lungs as a fine mist using a nebuliser.
