Few studies have explored the safety of long term use of racemic albuterol, and none have examined long-term dosing of levalbuterol. In this trial, regular use of levalbuterol HFA MDI or racemic albuterol HFA MDI was well tolerated, and no deterioration of lung function was detected during the study period of 52 weeks (1 year).
