Ventolin is used to treat breathing problems caused by asthma, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), or other airway conditions. Such problems can manifest as chest tightness, shortness of breath, and wheezing. Ventolin relaxes the muscles of the airway walls to facilitate breathing. This medication can also be used to prevent some breathing difficulties, for example, those associated with allergies, or asthma attacks when exerting effort. Ventolin Inhalator sprays a dose of powder into the oral cavity. Shake it well before use, and inhale as you press down on the inhaler so that the powder reaches the lungs directly. After inhalation, hold your breath for at least 10 to avoid exhaling the medication. If you need a second administration, wait half a minute.

What is the Ventolin Evohaler?

Ventolin is a short-acting airway dilator. It is a powder medicine that is administered through an inhaler. The active substance, salbutamol, decompresses the airways, relieving symptoms such as chest tightness, shortness of breath, coughing and wheezing. With a short press of the canister, the blue inhaler releases a fine mist of salbutamol which is directly breathed into the airways, targeting the lungs with precision and allowing your airways to relax and expand. From just 1-2 puffs up to four times a day when required, the Ventolin inhaler is able to relieve chest tightness for up to 6 hours, thanks to the fast acting salbutamol. Ventolin Evohalers are classed as a ‘reliever’ inhaler, used to alleviate symptoms of asthma only when they are present. Most asthma patients keep these reliever inhalers as a spare just incase it is needed.

How does Ventolin Evohaler work?

Ventolin is a medication that contains the active ingredient albuterol, which belongs to a class of drugs called beta-agonists. It works by relaxing the muscles in the airways, making it easier to breathe. When inhaled, Ventolin quickly opens up the air passages in the lungs, making it an effective treatment for asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and other respiratory conditions.

Metabolism and nutrition disorders

  • Rare: hypokalemia (low levels of potassium in the blood).

Therapy with agonists can lead to potentially severe hypokalemia.

Nervous system disorders

  • Common: tremor, headache (headache).
