How effective is Ventolin?

Ventolin is effective in quickly relieving symptoms such as wheezing or a full-blown asthma attack. 1 or 2 puffs usually relieves chest tightness for up to 6 hours. Once used, the medication will work immediately to relieve your breathing problems.

How does Ventolin work?

Ventolin asthma inhalers are classified as reliever inhalers and are also known as short-acting beta-2 agonists. They work by relaxing the muscles in the airways, allowing them to open after they have tightened due to an allergic-type response to a trigger. This provides relief and makes it easier to breathe.

How should I use Ventolin?

Ventolin Evohaler:

To use a Ventolin inhaler prime the blue inhaler prior to use. Remove the mouthpiece cap and shake the inhaler well so that the contents of the Ventolin inhaler are evenly mixed. If you are using it for the first time or after 5 days or more, spray it away from you once.

  • Hold the inhaler with your index finger on top and your thumb at the bottom, below the mouthpiece.
  • Breathe out as far as possible, and then place the mouthpiece in your mouth between your teeth.
  • Begin to breathe in slowly and deeply as you release the spray into your mouth by pressing on top of the canister.
  • Hold your breath and remove the blue inhaler from your mouth. Continue holding your breath for anywhere up to 10 seconds.
  • Breathe out slowly for as long as you can.
  • If you are repeating for a second puff, wait about half a minute before taking another dose.
  • Replace the cap of your blue inhaler immediately, rinse your mouth, and brush your teeth.

If you do not use your inhaler for more than 5 days or drop it, you will be required to prime it again as you did the first time it was used.

Ventolin Accuhaler:

To open the Ventolin Accuhaler, hold the outer case in your one hand. Put the thumb of the other hand on the thumb grip and push your thumb away from you. You will hear a click. This is the indication that the small hole in the mouthpiece is open.

  • Hold your inhaler upright in your dominant hand with the mouthpiece towards you. Slide the lever away from you. You will hear a click indicating a dose of your medicine is placed in the mouthpiece.
  • Breathe out as much as possible before putting the mouthpiece to your lips.
  • Breathe in slowly and deeply with your mouth and not your nose.
  • Remove the salbutamol inhaler, hold your breath for about 10 seconds, and breathe out slowly.

If you have any further questions on the inhaler technique, ask your doctor or pharmacist and follow the instructions carefully.

What dose of Ventolin should I choose?

There is only a certain number of doses of Ventolin inhalers you should take within a 24-hour period.

Ventolin Evohaler:

To prevent asthma: 2 puffs 10 to 15 minutes before exercise or potential exposure to a trigger

Maximum dose: 8 puffs in 24 hours

For children under 12 years of age

To prevent asthma: 1 puffs 10 to 15 minutes before exercise or potential exposure to a trigger (2 puffs only if needed)

For regular treatment: 2 puffs up to 4 times a day

Maximum dose: 8 puffs in 24 hours

For Adults and children aged 4 years and over

Maximum dose: 1 inhalation, 4 times in 24 hours

Do not use the asthma inhalers more than the prescribed dosage. Inform your doctor if the ventolin asthma inhalers are not working, as it may indicate that your chest problem may be getting worse and require a different medicine. Do not stop taking the asthma inhalers without consulting your GP. If you have any further questions, talk to your doctor, asthma nurse, or pharmacist at Click Pharmacy.

Side effects

Like all medicines, there is a possibility of experiencing side effects when using ventolin. Side effects are often mild and disappear as your body learns to adapt to the new medication.

Common side effects:

  • A dry mouth
  • Mouth and throat irritation
  • Feeling dizzy
  • Headache
  • Shaking in the legs and arms
  • Coughing
  • Muscle cramps
  • Dry lips
  • Peeling of lips

Rare side effects

  • Low level of Pottasium in blood
  • Increased blood flow to the extremities
  • Change in sleep
  • Change in behaviour
  • Restlessness

If you experience any serious side effects, including chest pain, irregular heartbeat, faster heart rate or a sense of confusion, seek medical help immediately.

Although it is rare to have an allergic reaction to this medication, if you experience a rash, tongue, throat and/or lips swelling or have further difficulty breathing, stop using the reliever inhaler and get medical help.
