More information about Ventolin

What is Ventolin?

Ventolin, a popular alternative to Salbutamol, Albuterol and Salamol, is a treatment for asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Both these conditions cause difficulty breathing, and can have a detrimental impact on daily life.

Sadly asthma cannot be cured, however, symptoms can be managed.

Ventolin is a 'reliever' inhaler, which means that it is used in instances where an attack has already started or is about to start. It relaxes the airways and relieves bronchospasms.

You can buy Ventolin online from HealthExpress as two versions - a dry-powder Accuhaler or a metered-dose, aerosol Evohaler.

Both inhalers contain the active ingredient salbutamol, which belongs to a class of medicines called bronchodilators.

Your regular doctor should already have prescribed one of these versions. If you are uncertain, please contact them for clarification.

How does this treatment work?

Inside your lungs, lots of tubes branch out like a tree. The smaller branches are known as the bronchiole - these connect to tiny sacs of air (alveoli) that supply oxygen to your blood.

During an asthma attack, the bronchiole becomes obstructed in response to irritants (such as pollen, mould spores and dust mites), making it harder for your body to process oxygen - known as a ‘bronchospasm’. This lack of oxygen causes you to experience the symptoms of an attack, including wheezing, coughing and breathlessness.

The active ingredient of Ventolin, salbutamol, is a bronchodilator. It relaxes a band of muscles that surround your airways. This allows them to widen, allowing more air to get in, and more oxygen to enrich your blood.

Ventolin 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 Accuhaler contains a 60-blister strip, each blister containing a 200mcg combination of microfine salbutamol and lactose that you inhale in dry-powder form
  • the Evohaler is an aerosol that delivers 100mcg of salbutamol in a metered-dose

How do I use this treatment?

You can buy Ventolin inhalers online from HealthExpress in dosages of 100mcg and 200mcg.

How you use your 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. Your doctor should have provided you with clear instructions on how to use it. If you are uncertain, please contact them for clarification.

Evohaler

When you experience signs of an attack, you should take one or two puffs of the Evohaler.

You should take two puffs before exercise or exposure to irritants.

The maximum dose is eight puffs within a 24-hour period. If you find that is not sufficient, please ask your doctor about other treatments.

The following is a summary of how to administer doses:

  • take the cap off the inhaler mouthpiece and hold the inhaler upright
  • shake the inhaler vigorously up and down
  • remove the mouthpiece
  • breathe out normally, as much as you comfortably can
  • hold the mouthpiece between your lips
  • at the same time as breathing in, press the top with your finger to spray the medicine
  • remove the inhaler from your mouth, and hold your breath for up to 10 seconds and breathe out slowly
  • if you need more than one dose, start again from step 3

evohaler

Accuhaler

You should take one puff of the Accuhaler to relieve attacks.

You should take one puff before exercise or exposure to irritants.

Do not exceed four puffs within a 24-hour period.
