Ventolin Inhaler 100mcg 200 Doses

What Ventolin inhaler is and what it is used for?

Ventolin inhaler contains a medicine called salbutamol. This belongs to a group of medicines called fast-acting bronchodilators.
• Bronchodilators help the airways in your lungs to stay open. This makes it easier for air to get in and out.
• They help to relieve chest tightness, wheezing and cough.
Ventolin Evohaler is used to treat breathing problems in people with asthma and similar conditions. This includes relieving and preventing asthma brought on by exercise or other “triggers”. These are things, which bring on asthma symptoms in some people. Common
triggers include house dust, pollen, cats, dogs and cigarette smoke.
Ventolin Evohaler contains a propellant called HFA 134a. This is less harmful to the environment than older inhalers. Older inhalers may taste differently to Ventolin Evohaler.
This will make no difference to how your medicine works.

Ventolin inhaler is a brand of the familiar blue inhaler used for asthma relief. Ventolin inhalers contain the active ingredient salbutamol. These inhalers relieve the tightness in the chest caused by asthma, such as coughing, wheezing and feeling breathless. It works by relaxing the muscles of the airways into the lungs, which makes it easier to breathe.

One or two puffs will usually relieve chest tightness for up to 6 hours. The onset of action of inhaled salbutamol is almost immediate.

Inhaled salbutamol is an ‘as required’ treatment. Reliever inhalers are used only when symptoms are present. Most patients use their reliever inhaler only occasionally. When asthma is well controlled there is usually little need for reliever inhalers such as salbutamol.

Asthma treatment

Asthma treatments vary depending on the frequency and severity of symptoms and what triggers a person’s asthma. Asthma symptoms are often intermittent.

First line treatment is usually a blue reliever type inhaler containing salbutamol, one or two puffs 4 to 6 hourly as required. Inhaled salbutamol provides fast acting temporary relief. If asthma is more severe and remains uncontrolled, inhaled steroids can be added. Steroids may be needed continuously or for courses varying from a day to weeks or even months at a time.
