Proventil was not created to treat certain breathing attacks, but help prevent them from occurring. It works by relaxing the muscles in the airway. When the muscles are relaxed, the air flow in the lungs is able to increase.

There are two ways the inhaler can be used.

  1. To treat and prevent bronchospasm in those with reversible obstructive airway disease.
  2. To prevent bronchospasm that is exercise induced.

History of Proventil

Proventil is the orally-administered form of salbutamol. The drug is manufactured and distributed by the Israeli pharmaceutical company Teva. It is manufactured by the US company Schering-Plough.

Proventil has made the World Health Organization’s biennial “List of Essential Medicines,” multiple times. It is one of the five essential antiasthmatics for COPD, even though many insurance providers do not cover it.
