albuterol sulfate is a drug that is used to break up mucus in the lungs, it is not a cough suppresant. Unless you have pnuemonia or bronchitis or RSV or something like that, it really won't do you any good to take it. It is used over a short period of time to clear the lungs.

I have a chronic cough problem the Dr thinks is asthma that developed from GERD and one of things I have is an Albuterol Sulfate inhaler that is supposed to open up my bronchial tubes when I have an asthmatic coughing attack... only it doesn't always work very well for me. I believe it is a steroid? It will not stop a cough per se; it is supposed to free your lungs from the constricted bronchial tubes so you can breathe again. It is a short term thing. Not complete solution to a chronic cough... you have to find the cause. Many chronic cough are caused by gastric reflux I am told by the Dr.
