It must be remembered that the later adrenergic agents (albuterol, bitolterol, pirbuterol, levalbuterol, salmeterol, formoterol, and arformoterol) are much more beta 2 specific than previous agents such as epinephrine and isoetherine.

Another class of drugs, beta agonists, such as albuterol, bitolterol, metaproterenol, pirbuterol, and terbutaline, are used either when the symptoms occur or just before an activity that may cause symptoms.
The more recent generation of beta-2 agonists, including albuterol, levalbuterol, bitolterol and pirbuterol, have minimum untoward cardiovascular effects, making them ideal for managing all forms of asthma.
The longer acting [beta]-adrenergic bronchodilators, bitolterol and formoterol (under investigation), show promise for the use in the treatment of this illness.
