I have albuterol that expired in 2011 so is it still effective?

3 doctors agree

In brief: Probably

The albuterol is probably still effective but perhaps not as effective as a new inhaler.
If you're having trouble with your breathing, i certainly would use it but you should call your physician or pharmacy to request a refill.
