Albuterol is one of the popular bronchodilators available in the market which has been designed to initiate increase the air flow to the lungs by relaxing the airway muscles. Inhalation of this drug has also been used to prevent and treat bronchospasm in those patients who have reported reverse obstructive cases of airway disease. Prevention of bronchospasm caused due to exercise can also be prevented using albulterol.
Use by athletes and bodybuilders
Albuterol has the reputation of producing a stimulatory effect, while initiating an increase in the blood pressure and aggravating the heart rate. It has been reported that people have used albuterol for its stimulating characteristics. It is to be noted that most of them just felt 'jittery' after the inhalation. As stimulants are known to initiate weight loss, there has been massive interest in the mainstream society towards this drug. There has also been interest from many a athletes as albuterol administration could be extremely beneficial to athletic performance. Albuterol has not been approved for any of the above mentioned uses.
Albuterol has been branded by many as Clenbuterol's (Clen) faster cousin. It is known to possess all the characteristics of Clen, but has potential to be even more beneficial than clen for athletes. Clenbuterol's effects on the body can be very long lasting while albuterol effects have a short, half life. One cannot tell the difference between the fat burning benefits of these drugs as they both have the same effect. However, Albuterol has shown to have some potential effects on increase in strength as well.
Bodybuilders like to use albuterol as an ancillary for steroid use. It is primarily being used by those users who are interested in that little extra definition which sets them apart from the rest. More often than not, it is being cycled with the traditional steroids used in the cutting cycle like Primobolan, Oxandrolone, Testosterone along with many others.
Side effects of Albuterol
Albuterol was initially never thought of as a drug which would eventually be abused by athletes and bodybuilders. It was purely a prescription drug. Now, with more and more reports coming in about albuterol misuse, there are a few side effects which have come into light, some of which have been listed below:
The side effects listed above are known to be common among those users who are using the drug only as medication and have no intention of using them for any other benefits. As we have discussed before, albuterol is also being used as an ancillary in a bodybuilder's steroid cycle. Misuse of this drug can have some serious complications. We have listed some of these major side effects below:
Because of side effects such as increase in heart rate and the dangerous increases in blood pressure due to albuterol administration, the user is at a great risk of suffering from a heart attack or a stroke or other heart related complications. Albuterol can also be dangerous for those users who have overactive thyroid, diabetes of epilepsy. Users who may have any history with the above mentioned disorders should consider albuterol administration only after consulting with a doctor.
In the event of the user missing a dose, he should take it as soon as possible or skip it if the next scheduled dose is around the corner. Overdose of this drug can be fatal and emergency medical assistance should be provided to the user if he suffers from albuterol overdose.
Albuterol is one of the most effective medications available for controlling asthma. It has a few side effects for prescription users which are considered mild under the accepted standards. Albuterol should not be denied to asthma patients even if they have a history of substance abuse as this drug is vital for their survival.
Because albuterol is a potent stimulant it is being abused by drug addicts. This brings a bad name to the drug and because of the lack of basic awareness, these addicts are exposing them to the possibility of overdose induced death. Albuterol is a prescription drug so it can be tough to acquire from over the counter pharmacies. This is where the black market comes into the picture. It is well known that the black market is notorious for selling prohibited drugs and steroids to those people who are looking to procure them without any prescription on them and capable of shedding any amount for the same.
Bodybuilders and those people looking for quick weight loss also form part of the demand group for illegal albuterol. What these black market buyers do not know, is the horrifying fact that the black market drugs can be adulterated with other substances and addictive agents which can have major implications to their system and get them to become dependent on the substance. It is the responsibility of the authorities to create general awareness on the harms of procuring drugs from the black market and take strict action against both buyers and sellers in order to put an end to these black market transactions. Researchers working on the drug's development should be further encouraged to make this drug safer and side effect free and should be financed accordingly.
