What is Ventolin?
Ventolin, with the generic name albuterol sulfate, is an oral inhalation indicated to prevent and treat bronchospasm among patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or asthma. It is also used for exercise-induced bronchospasm. Ventolin could control breathing symptoms like shortness of breath and wheezing.
This beta 2-adrenergic agonist works by increasing the cyclic AMP and activating protein kinase A. Then, it hampers myosin phosphorylation and decreases intracellular ionic calcium concentrations. As a result, Ventolin could relax the smooth muscles of the airways and inhibit the release of mast cell mediators in the airway.
This is available in Ventolin 100 mcg (90 mcg albuterol base) per actuation.
How to use Ventolin inhaler
To initiate, read the medication information leaflet that comes with this product. Do not use this inhaler if you have not fully understood the drug information and instructions printed in the guide. In case you need further medical advice or have queries on how to use this inhaler, you may ask your doctor or pharmacist.
Remember to use Ventolin as directed and with a dosing schedule. If you are prescribed other inhalers at the same time, there should be a one-minute interval for each. This is usually prescribed every four to six hours as needed. Do not alter your Ventolin dosage as it depends on your medical condition and response to treatment. Using Ventolin more often than prescribed could increase the risk of severe adverse reactions.

- Exhale through your mouth fully.

- Simultaneously push the canister fully as you inhale slowly and deeply through your mouth.

Precautions when using Ventolin
Before starting to use this medication, you must fully disclose your medical history to your physician, especially any history of heart problems, hypertension, or seizure. Some illnesses and disorders may have an impact on how your body responds to this medication. In addition, you must talk about all the prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products you are taking due to possible drug interactions.
