R-albuterol is more biologically active with a higher binding affinity [36]. Although S-albuterol was originally thought to be inert, in vitro studies have suggested the possibility of some deleterious effects, including smooth muscle contraction, increased hyperresponsiveness, and increased mucin production. ).
