Ventolin, also known by its generic name salbutamol, is available in many forms. It is most commonly used as an inhaler and reliever, which means that it is used in instances where an attack has already started or is about to start. When Ventolin is used, it almost immediately goes to work to help relax and open the airways to allow air to flow more easily. It is used for the relief of bronchospasms in conditions such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

It's not always convenient to go to your doctor for a repeat prescription, which is why we provide a safe yet convenient online consultation service. All consultations are reviewed by our doctors to check whether the Ventolin inhaler is right for you to use, if it is you'll be able to order Ventolin for next-day delivery.

Dr Hilary Jones talks about asthma inhalers

What are the benefits of using it?

This treatment can be used to provide relief from the symptoms of an asthma attack, therefore promoting almost immediate relief from wheezing, tightness and shortness of breath. In serious cases, Ventolin inhalers can be used alongside preventative treatments to reduce inflammation and mucous production.

How does it work?

The Ventolin inhaler is available in two forms, as an Accuhaler and as an Evohaler. Both types of inhaler are extremely effective in providing relief from an attack, although they may do this in slightly different ways. The plastic Accuhaler contains a 60-blister strip, each blister containing a 200mcg combination of microfine salbutamol and lactose. The pressurised Evohaler device delivers 100mcg of salbutamol in a dose, and can act within just five minutes to provide effective relief.

During an asthma attack the bronchiole becomes obstructed in response to a particular irritant and this is known as bronchospasm. Ventolin works as a beta-adrenergic receptor agonist, which means that it stimulates beta receptors around the body, in particular those around the airways. Stimulating beta receptors in this area causes muscles to relax and allows more air to pass through to ease breathing. Salbutamol also has the ability to help with inflammation of cells prompted by an allergic reaction.

Who can use it?

Ventolin can be safely used by most asthmatic persons during a reaction or to ward off an impending asthma attack. However, if you are allergic to the active ingredient in the Ventolin inhalers, salbutamol or lactose in the case of the Accuhaler, alternative treatments should be used.

Make sure that you inform your doctor if you have diabetes, heart disease, hyperthyroidism, arrhythmias, if you are pregnant or if you have any other medical condition or are taking any other medications.

Because the way in which you take both the Ventolin Accuhaler and the Evohaler doses, you may prefer one type of inhaler over the other if you find that you have difficulty using a certain type of inhaler.

How do you use this inhaler?

How you should use your Ventolin inhaler will depend on the severity of your condition, the medications you are currently using and whether you are using it as a preventative treatment or for relief. Generally, as a relief treatment it is recommended that you take two puffs of the Evohaler as and when it is needed to deal with an attack, or one puff of the Accuhaler.

Are there any likely side effects?

Usually Ventolin inhalers aren't likely to cause side effects, but they are a possibility. Some of the most common side effects experienced by users aren't likely to be serious and include throat irritation, a cough or muscle pain. If you experience anything more serious or bothersome, seek medical help straight away.
