In brief: Albuterol
To my knowledge, there is no tolerance issues with albuterol.
Patients with asthma use it in emergencies so there is an obvious attachment to it. If you find you are needing more then you thought you would, then you should probably get check out by a lung specialist to assess for moderate to severe asthma.
