What is Ventolin?
Ventolin is a prescription only medicine created by GlaxoSmithKlein plc (GSK plc) that is prescribed to those with asthma or COPD. It is incredibly popular amongst those with asthma, known as ‘the blue inhaler’ more commonly. It comes in the form of a small, blue handheld device with an aerosol cannister on the inside that administers the drug from the mouthpiece and helps those with asthma to breathe clearly. Asthma is a respiratory condition which involves the lining of your bronchial tubes in the throat to swell when irritants are breathed in. Irritants can include certain and very common triggers like dust, pollen, pet hair, cold temperatures, exercise and much more. Other patients can be more susceptible to these than others, and there can be more specific triggers that involve patient needing to use their inhaler.
How does Ventolin work?
Ventolin is the brand named version for the drug that it contains, known as Salbutamol Sulfate, which is part of a family of medicines known as fast-acting bronchodilators. Other bronchodilators, such as Bricanyl and Salmeterol and more, are responsible for opening airways in your lungs and allowing them to stay open for much longer, ultimately relieving symptoms of wheeziness and breathlessness in asthmatics. Salbutamol works by allowing the muscles of the airways into the lungs to relax which ultimately makes it easier to breathe. There is no limit with taking your inhaler, however, the standard dosage for Ventolin inhaler is 1-2 puffs up to four times a day.
