Are there any benefits of Ventolin?
The greatest benefit of this treatment is that it can provide almost instantaneous relief from the distressing symptoms of an asthma attack, which can include shortness of breath, chest tightness and wheezing. Asthma attacks can be upsetting and frightening, especially if they take place when you are not prepared. Knowing you have a reliever inhaler ready if an asthma attack does occur can give you the peace of mind to know you are ready. Ventolin can also be used alongside preventative treatments to help control asthma.
How does this treatment work?
Ventolin is what is known as a beta-adrenergic receptor agonist, which means it works to stimulate particular beta receptors in the body that help the muscles to relax. As an asthma attack causes the bronchioles to become obstructed, relaxing the airway muscles and allowing a greater flow of air through them is essential in relieving the symptoms of an asthma attack. Salbutamol, which is the generic name for Ventolin, can also help to reduce the inflammation of certain cells which is brought about by an asthma attack.
Can anyone use Ventolin inhalers?
Most people who are asthmatic can use Ventolin safely. However, it is not suitable for people who are allergic to salbutamol, the active ingredient in this medication. You should also note during your online consultation if you suffer from any medical conditions that could affect your suitability for this treatment, such as hyperthyroidism, diabetes or heart disease. You should also disclose if you are pregnant. If you experience difficulty using inhalers, an alternative treatment may be more suitable for you.
How do I use Ventolin?
Your use of the inhaler will depend on your particular condition. For example, if you are using Ventolin as a relief treatment, it is generally recommended that you inhale two puffs either during or before an attack in order to alleviate the symptoms. If you are also using a preventative treatment this may affect how and when you should use your Ventolin inhaler. You should discuss this with your doctor.
Ventolin side effects
It is very unlikely that you will experience side effects with this treatment, but there is a small possibility that they could occur. Potential side effects could include muscle pain, throat irritation and a cough. Any side effect that is particularly serious or bothers you in any way should cause you to seek medical advice from a health professional.
