Clenbuterol is a prescribed Asthma medication which is catabolic to fat and anabolic to muscle. Clenbuterol's most valid application seems to be as a pre-contest, cutting drug. It is a Beta-2 adrenergic agonist. This means it acts just like adrenaline (epinephrine) at a certain type of receptor named Beta-2.

Clenbuterol belongs to a broad group of drugs knows as sympathomimetics. These drugs affect that sympathetic nervous system in a wide number of ways, largely mediated by the distribution of adrenoceptors. There are actually nine different types of these receptors in the body, which are classified as either alpha or beta and further subcategorized by type number.
Depending on the specific affinities of these agents for the various receptors, they can potentially be used in the treatment of conditions such as asthma, hypertension, cardiovascular shock, arrhythmias, migraine headaches and anaphylactic shock.
