Generic name: PIRBUTEROL ACETATE 200ug
Dosage form: inhalation aerosol
Medically reviewed by Drugs.com. Last updated on July 14, 2020.
The usual dose for adults and children 12 years and older is two inhalations (400 mcg) repeated every 4-6 hours. One inhalation (200 mcg) repeated every 4-6 hours may be sufficient for some patients.
A total daily dose of 12 inhalations should not be exceeded.
If a previously effective dosage regimen fails to provide the usual relief, medical advice should be sought immediately as this is often a sign of seriously worsening asthma which would require reassessment of therapy.
