Pirbuterol (Maxair)

Pirbuterol acetate (Maxair®) is a prescription drug used to treat asthma and other similar lung problems. It belongs to a class of asthma drugs known as beta-adrenergic receptor agonists, or beta agonists for short.
 
Pirbuterol comes in a special inhaler that does not release the medication until you inhale through the mouthpiece. In clinical studies, it started working within five minutes, with its effects typically lasting for five hours. Some people use the inhaler only when needed during an asthma attack, while others use it regularly to prevent attacks.
