Ventolin HFA, the brand-name form of albuterol, is a prescription medication used to treat
bronchospasm in people who have reversible obstructive airway disease. It is also used
to prevent exercise-induced bronchospasm. Ventolin HFA belongs to a group of drugs called
beta agonists or bronchodilators, which work by relaxing the smooth muscle of the airways.
This medication comes in an inhaler to be breathed slowly into the lungs. Common side
effects of Ventolin include fast heartbeat, shakiness, headache, and nervousness. This
medication is only to be used if prescribed by your health care provider. For RxWiki,
