If your doctor prescribes albuterol for you, it would be to treat a lung condition such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Albuterol works as a bronchodilator -- it relaxes and opens the airways, which makes it easier for you to breathe. Albuterol comes in several forms -- tablets, syrup, extended-release tablets, inhaler and nebulizer; your doctor will determine which form of albuterol is right for you.
