Mechanism of Action
- Directly binds to airway Î²2 adrenoceptors, stimulating smooth muscle relaxation and bronchodilation through induction of cAMP with resulting phosphorylation of muscle regulatory proteins and modification of cellular calcium concentration.
- Acute exacerbations of asthma
- Symptomatic relief of asthma
- Acute exacerbations of COPD
- Adverse Effects
- Hypokalaemia / hypomagnesaemia
- Ketoacidosis (diabetics)
