How does smoking effect bronchodilators?

Your humble question:  How does smoking effect bronchodilators?

My humble answer:  Smoking will have no effect on how a bronchodilator (like Albuterol and Xopenex) works.  However, smoking can make asthma worse, and smoking can also do further damage to your lungs and cause and worsen COPD.  So if your smoking further damages your lungs, this may make it so the albuterol has less effect, or may make managing your lung disease more difficult.
