What is Ventolin?

Ventolin contains the active ingredient salbutamol. Ventolin is an asthma inhaler, used as a reliever treatment. It relieves and controls asthma symptoms when you’re having an attack.

Ventolin is a type of inhaler called a bronchodilator, which just means it’s an inhaler that helps to relax your airways to make it easier to breathe when you get symptoms.

The Ventolin inhaler comes in two types: the Evohaler and the Accuhaler. They both work in the same way to relieve your symptoms, but you use them in a slightly different way. 

The Evohaler looks and works more like a ‘traditional’ inhaler. The Accuhaler comes in a circle shape and to use it, you just breathe in without pressing down.

Asthma is a condition that affects the airways, making it difficult to breathe. For many people it’s little more than an annoyance that leads to shortness of breath and wheezing. For some it can be life threatening.

Asthma can be set off by many things, from pollution and infections to exercise, so each person will need to take care with these triggers to control it. The condition can be well managed with medications like Ventolin, which should be kept close to you in case an attack occurs.

How does Ventolin work?

It relaxes the airways when they’ve been irritated by an asthma trigger. That means you can breathe more easily, leading to less breathlessness, coughing and tightness in the chest.

As it’s fast-acting, Ventolin provides quick treatment of bronchospasms (when the muscles in your lungs tighten, making it harder for you to breathe). Short acting bronchodilators shouldn’t normally be used to prevent asthma, except sometimes in the case of sport induced asthma.

What doses of Ventolin are there?

The Ventolin Evohaler contains 200 puffs per inhaler. Each puff has 100 micrograms of salbutamol, the ingredient that makes the device work.

The Accuhaler contains 60 blister strips, each with dry powder containing salbutamol. When you breathe in, you inhale one of these 60 doses. Each dose has 200 micrograms of salbutamol. 

There’s a counter on the Accuhaler that tells you how many doses you have left. When you get down to five, the numbers will appear in red. This helps let you know when it’s time to order another inhaler.

How to use Ventolin

If you’re using the Ventolin Evohaler:

  • To test the inhaler before using it for the first time, shake it well and prime it by spraying it into the air four times.
  • Take the mouthpiece off first and check everything is clean and clear.
  • Then shake the inhaler a few times to make sure all the ingredients are mixed.
  • Next, breathe out fully and hold your thumb against the base of the inhaler.
  • Make a seal with your lips around the mouthpiece and breathe in.
  • At the same time as you breathe in, press down on the canister to release the medicine.
  • Now hold your breath for as long as you’re comfortable.
  • If you’re taking two puffs, wait about thirty seconds before you start again. Put the cover back on the mouthpiece after using it.

If you’re using the Ventolin Accuhaler:

  • First, open the Accuhaler. Hold the outside case with one hand. Put the thumb on your other hand on the thumb grip.
  • Push your thumb as far away as possible from you. When it’s in the right place, you’ll hear a click and the mouthpiece will open.
  • Point the mouthpiece towards you. Slide the lever on the side of the Accuhaler backwards until it clicks. This means a dose is in place and ready to inhale.
  • Breathe out as far as you comfortably can.
  • Put your lips to the mouthpiece and breathe in deeply through your mouth.
  • Take the Accuhaler away from your lips.
  • Hold your breath for ten seconds, or as long as you can, then breathe out slowly.
  • Slide the thumb grip back to you until you feel a click. This seals the device.

How long does it take for Ventolin to work?

As Ventolin is used to treat an asthma attack, it needs to get to work quickly. It can take a few minutes before you feel its effects, but it should be noticeable almost immediately.

If you’re using it as a preventer, you might not notice any difference. This can be a good sign as it may mean it’s managing your symptoms very effectively.

Can you take too much Ventolin?

Ventolin is usually needed two to four times a day, but in certain circumstances this can increase to eight puffs within a 24-hour period. You shouldn’t exceed this though.

If you take more Ventolin than you should, you might experience unpleasant side effects. Symptoms of a Ventolin overdose include a rapid heart rate, hyperactivity and feeling shaky.
If you notice any of these symptoms you should seek immediate medical help. They should subside after a few hours, but it’s better to be cautious.

How we source info.

When we present you with stats, data, opinion or a consensus, we’ll tell you where this came from. And we’ll only present data as clinically reliable if it’s come from a reputable source, such as a state or government-funded health body, a peer-reviewed medical journal, or a recognised analytics or data body. Read more in our editorial policy.

FAQ: Ventolin

Have something specific you want to know? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

How effective is Ventolin?

Answer:
Ventolin is a straightforward and easy to use device that allows you to get the medication to the airways as quickly as possible. This is vital for its effectiveness when treating an attack.

Its effectiveness has been proven to be high, with a significant reduction in the need for hospitalisation. The peace of mind provided by a fast acting asthma treatment is also great for your freedom and general well-being.

What dosage of Ventolin should I use?

Answer:
Each Ventolin dosage will depend on the exact reasons you’re taking it and the severity of the condition. Always follow our clinician’s instructions and read the package leaflet that comes with your medication. You can increase the dose of Ventolin if needed, but speak with our clinician before doing so.

The Ventolin pump is used as a reliever and its effects last for several hours. One or two puffs should help ease your symptoms. Daily use might include two puffs up to four times a day. You shouldn’t take more than eight puffs of Ventolin a day, but talk to our clinician if you’re still struggling to manage your asthma.

How should I clean my Ventolin inhaler?

Answer:
You should clean your inhaler every two weeks to make sure that it continues to give you the full and accurate dose.

To clean the Evohaler, simply rinse the inhaler itself under warm water then leave it to air dry. The aerosol in the Evohaler doesn’t need washing, so remove it before running the device under the tap. To clean the Accuhaler, just wipe the mouthpiece with a dry tissue.

Is Ventolin a steroid?

Answer:
No, Ventolin doesn’t contain steroids. The active ingredient in Ventolin is salbutamol, a bronchodilator. Some asthma inhalers contain corticosteroids that help to prevent asthma symptoms. 

The steroids in asthma inhalers shouldn’t be confused with anabolic steroids, which are the ones that have been used to gain an unfair advantage in sport. Instead, corticosteroids are copies of the natural steroids found in the body.

Why should I buy Ventolin online with Treated?

Answer:
Asthma treatment should be a personalised thing. It should be convenient too. We can help you make sure you’re on the right treatment, and that you stay on the right treatment. If you want to stay on the same treatment, or think you may need to switch something else, talk to us to get the advice you need. Change, pause or cancel your subscription at any point.

If there’s anything you’re unsure about, or if you’d like to make any adjustments, our clinicians are on hand to help. Just drop them a message. They’ll get in touch on a regular basis to see how your treatment is working out for you.
