Salbutamol represents beta-adrenomimetic primary influence on β2 adrenoreceptors (being localized in bronchi, myometrium and blood vessels).
"Salbutamol Neo", with selective stimulation of bronchial β2 adrenoreceptors, causes relaxation of smooth muscles and expansion of bronchi, stops bronchospasm, increases the vital capacity of lungs. Renders weakly expressed positive chrono- and inotropic operation on a myocardium. Expands coronary vessels, practically doesn't reduce arterial pressure. Lowers, myometrium tone and contractility (tocolytic operation).
Salbutamol is quickly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. Maximum concentration in blood serum is reached approximately in 2 hours.
The preparation metabolizes in the liver and is excreted in the form of metabolites. Salbutamol sulfate doesn't break up by lungs catechol-0-methyltransferase, by this reason it has long-term action.

Influence on vehicle and mechanisms management:
Preparation doesn’t influence on vehicle and mechanisms management.
Interaction with other medicines or other sort interaction:
Simultaneous usage of the preparation together with other adrenomimetic means is forbidden, because it may cause undesirable effect from the side of cardiovascular system, e.g. tachycardia and strong heartbeat. In special cases, after doctor’s consultation, usage of inhalation beta-adrenomimetic means is permitted.
Antidepressant means and MAO inhibitors can reinforce Salbutamol’s influence on the cardiovascular system.
