Generic Name: Albuterol Inhalation Solution (0.63 mg per 3 mL and 1.25 mg per 3 mL) (al-BUE-ter-ol)
Brand Name: AccuNeb
AccuNeb Solution is used for:
Treating breathing problems in children 2 to 12 years old who have asthma. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.
AccuNeb Solution is a sympathomimetic (beta agonist) bronchodilator. It works by relaxing the smooth muscle in the airway, which allows air to flow in and out of the lungs more easily.
Do NOT use AccuNeb Solution if:
- you are allergic to any ingredient in AccuNeb Solution
- you are using another short-acting sympathomimetic bronchodilator (eg, metaproterenol) or epinephrine
Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.
Before using AccuNeb Solution:
Some medical conditions may interact with AccuNeb Solution. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any medical conditions, especially if any of the following apply to you:
- if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding
- if you are taking any prescription or nonprescription medicine, herbal preparation, or dietary supplement
- if you have allergies to medicines, foods, or other substances
- if you have a history of heart problems, (eg, fast or irregular heartbeat, heart failure), blood vessel problems, high blood pressure, or low blood potassium levels
- if you have a history of seizures, diabetes, an overactive thyroid, kidney problems, or an adrenal gland tumor (pheochromocytoma)
- if you have ever had an unusual reaction to another sympathomimetic medicine (eg, pseudoephedrine)
- if you are taking a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) (eg, phenelzine)
or tricyclic antidepressant (eg, amitriptyline), or if you have taken either of these medicines within the last 14 days

- Beta-blockers (eg, propranolol) because they may decrease this
