Pirbuterol is a bronchodilator that relaxes muscles in the airways and increases air flow to the lungs.

Pirbuterol inhalation is used to treat or prevent bronchospasm in people with reversible obstructive airway disease. Pirbuterol is sometimes used with another medication such as theophylline or a steroid.
