Ventolin vs Clenil: what’s the difference?

Asthma is a common respiratory condition that affects 1 in 11 children and 1 in 12 adults in the UK. While it is often a life-long condition, people with asthma can lead a normal life with treatment. Usually, asthma is managed with a device commonly known as an inhaler that delivers asthma medication directly into the airways and lungs. Inhalers can be preventative, meaning you take them to prevent asthma attacks, or they can be reliever inhalers aimed to treat an asthma attack.

Clenil Inhalers

Clenil inhalers are preventative inhalers used each day to help stop future asthma attacks. They contain a corticosteroid called beclomethasone that reduces lung inflammation to prevent asthma symptoms like shortness of breath and wheezing. It can also make you less susceptible to attacks caused by irritants like pet dander, cold air, exercise, and smoke.

Is Clenil for Severe Asthma?

Preventative inhalers like Clenil do not treat acute or sudden asthma attacks. If you are suffering from an asthma attack, you will need a short-acting relief inhaler to treat your symptoms.

Which Drugs Interact with Clenil?

Medications that weaken your immune system, like cancer drugs and anti-rejection drugs for organ recipients, may interact with Clenil. Clenil may also skew lab or skin test results. Always speak to your GP or pharmacist if you have concerns about drug interactions.

Ventolin Inhalers

Ventolin inhalers, also known as Salbutamol, are fast-acting bronchodilators, otherwise known as reliever inhalers. They are used to treat the symptoms of sudden asthma attacks and work by relaxing the muscles in your airways and lungs making it easier to breathe. They can be used by adults and children over the age of 4.

Which Drugs Interact with Ventolin?

Ventolin has been known to interact with tricyclic antidepressants like amitriptyline, doxepin, and protriptyline. Other interactions include beta blockers, diuretics, and Digoxin. This list isn’t exhaustive so speak to your GP or pharmacist about all the medications you take.
