Ventolin and its drug substance Salbutamol

Salbutamol is an approved active substance used for Ventolin inhaler. The medicine contained in the inhaler is intended for oral administration.

Specifics and pharmaceutical properties of Salbutamol:

  • The substance expands the airways (bronchi), facilitating air passage into and out of the lungs;
  • The therapeutic effect comes within 5 - 10 minutes and lasts up to 5 - 6 hours;
  • The half-life (T½) is about 4.5 hours.

The inhaler's mechanism of action is based on dispersed spraying of the drug. In the form of an aerosol, the medicine works faster, reaches different parts of the respiratory system, and has the required therapeutic effect.

Indications for use

Ventolin has many therapeutic benefits and is used in the following cases:

  • Preventing and reducing symptoms of asthma attacks;
  • Preventing bronchospasm in some conditions (for example, due to dust or exercise).

Treatment regimens and Ventolin inhaler dosage

Follow your doctor's advice and recommendations regarding the proper dosage regimen because each case is individual:

  • The usual dose is 200 mcg (2 inhalations) for adults and 100 mcg (1 inhalation) for children;
  • You can increase or decrease the dosage depending on age, symptoms, and some other conditions;
  • Usually, the maximum daily dose is 100 - 200 mcg as required, but no more than 4 times within 24 hours;
  • Preventing bronchospasm caused by active sports or exercise requires 2 inhalations 7 - 15 minutes before the activity.

Recommendations for use

Any medicine can cause side effects. It is important to minimize side effects and maximize effectiveness. For the treatment to be effective and lead to improved health, follow these recommendations:

  • First, carefully read the section «How to use Ventolin inhaler» in the patient leaflet;
  • Do only the prescribed daily number of inhalations;
  • Usually, this drug lasts over 3 - 4 hours. So, avoid doing your next inhalation during this time;
  • Follow this rule: 2 inhalations at a time for adults and 1 inhalation at a time for children unless otherwise prescribed by a doctor;
  • If an attack is severe and inhalation is not effective enough, consult a doctor as soon as possible.

Children should always use the inhaler under the supervision of adults. If conventional treatment is impossible, children can also take inhaled medications at home using a nebulizer with a mask attached.
