    Salbutamol (albuterol) is a β-adrenoceptor agonist used as a bronchodilator for the treatment of asthma and as a uterine relaxant for the suspension of premature labour. Salbutamol has been marketed as a racemic mixture, although β-agonist activity resides almost exclusively in the...

    The article presents information on orciprenaline sulphate which is a sympathomimetic and beta-receptor stimulant which has some beta2-receptor selectivity (though much less than salbutamol and is therefore more likely to cause side-effects). It is mainly used as a bronchodilator in reversible...
