In brief: No

Albuterol is a medication given by mouth or inhaled that dilates the airways and is typically used in asthma and COPD to improve breathing.
Epinephrine is used for many purposes. It is the same as the body's natural adrenalin. Epinephrine helps reverse acute allergic reactions, and is usually given only to help the breathing in acute emergencies.
