Ventolin is the most well-known reliever inhaler, which can be used during or before the start of an asthma attack. It contains the active ingredient salbutamol which when inhaled, works quickly in the lungs to relax and open the airways allowing the user to breath much easier, as well as reducing associated asthmatic symptoms. The Ventolin inhaler is available to order conveniently in 100mcg and 200mcg dosages and as an evohaler or accuhaler.

We at HealthExpress want to provide you with the best information and treatment possible, in order to effectively and successfully manage and treat your asthma.

What is Ventolin?

Ventolin, also known as salbutamol or albuterol, 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. Ventolin can be used by both men and women over 18, with asthma.

How does Ventolin 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.[1]

What are the benefits of Ventolin?

Ventolin inhalers come with a number of benefits that you can experience. These include:

  • 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.
  • Ventolin evohaler contains a propellant called HFA-134a, which means it's less harmful to the environment than older inhalers.
  • Ventolin inhalers can be used to prevent asthma brought on as a result of exercise (exercise-induced bronchospasm).
  • Controlling the symptoms of asthma by using Ventolin inhalers can decrease time lost from work or school.
  • Asthma symptoms can be relieved after just one or two puffs from the inhaler.

Who can use Ventolin?

Most asthmatic people can safely use Ventolin (albuterol), 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 to use Ventolin?

You can buy Ventolin inhalers on HealthExpress in a dosage of 100mcg and 200mcg. For environmental reasons they are now propelled by HFA making the inhalers safe for use. 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.

The maximum dose during a 24-hour period is eight puffs.[2] Please ensure that you read through the patient leaflet before using your Ventolin inhaler.

  • Take the cap off the inhaler mouthpiece and hold the inhaler upright. Shake the inhaler vigorously up and down.
