What is a ventolin inhaler?

A ventolin inhaler is used by asthmatics to relieve their condition and to prevent further asthma attacks.

How do ventolin inhalers work?

The ventolin inhaler contains a bronchodilator: it acts on the airways in the lungs which have been constricted due to an asthma attack. The bronchodilator helps keep the airways open, allowing air to move in and out more easily. This helps to relieve chest tightness, wheezing and coughing.

Do I need to clean my inhaler?

Yes, this will help ensure it works as well as possible. You should clean your inhaler once a week. You should remove the metal canister from the plastic case and remove the mouthpiece cover. Wash the plastic case under warm water and dry it thoroughly, both inside and outside. Then you can put the inhaler back together. You should not put any metal part in water.

Do I need a prescription?

Yes, you can obtain this and your ventolin inhaler online from DrEd.

Who usually uses ventolin inhalers?

Anyone who has asthma might be prescribed a ventolin inhaler, so long as it is suitable for them. The inhaler can be used in the specific case of asthma attacks, or as regular treatment. Children and adults can use ventolin inhalers, but directions for use will be different. You should check the “Warnings” tab for a full and comprehensive list of who can and can’t use the ventolin inhaler.

Can inhalers become addictive?

There is no evidence that the treatment is addictive in any way. However, if you find yourself using the inhaler more frequently than advised, this may be a sign that the treatment is not working effectively. In this case, you should consult your doctor.

Does the ventolin inhaler contain chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs)?

No. The propellant used is a hydrofluoroalkane. These are not harmful to you or the environment.

When do I need to replace the hydrofluoroalkane in the inhaler?

You should replace it as soon as the dose counter reads 020. If the counter reads 000, throw the inhaler away. In addition, check the expiration date on the inhaler, and do not use it after this date.

For adults and adolescents aged 12 years and over :

  • To relieve asthma : one or two puffs
  • To prevent asthma : two puffs 10-15 minutes before exercise or exposure to a “trigger”
  • For regular treatment : two puffs up to 4 times a day

For children under 12 years of age:

  • To relieve asthma : one puff (two if required)
  • To prevent asthma : one puff 10-15 minutes before exercise or exposure to a “trigger” (two if required)
  • For regular treatment : two puffs up to 4 times a day

The maximum dose is 8 puffs in a 24-hour period.

If you take more puffs than recommended, you may feel shaky and your heart may beat quickly. These effects should wear off within a couple of hours, but it is best to consult your doctor.

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if this is near the time scheduled for your next dose, do not double up to make up for the missed dose. Just skip the forgotten dose and continue treatment as normal.

Do not stop taking the inhaler without your doctor’s permission.

Do not use more than the maximum dose. If the treatment isn’t working and your symptoms are severe, seek medical assistance immediately.

You should shake the inhaler well before use, particularly if it is new.

How do I use a ventolin inhaler?

To use the inhaler, remove the mouthpiece cover. Place the mouthpiece inside your mouth. Do not bite the inhaler. Breathe out. Just after you start to breathe in, press down on the top button to release a “puff”. Breathe in deeply. Remove your finger from the button and remove your mouth from the mouthpiece. Hold your breath, but only for as long as this is comfortable. Wait about half a minute between puffs, if multiple puffs are necessary. Replace the mouthpiece cover right away to avoid dust and other debris entering the inhaler. You should stand up or sit up straight whilst using your ventolin inhaler. You can take your ventolin inhaler with or without food.

What do ventolin inhalers contain?

The active substance is salbutamol sulphate or albuterol sulphate. HFA 134a is also an ingredient. Ventolin inhalers are made of an aluminium alloy can sealed with a metering valve, actuator and dust cap. Each canister contains 200 doses.

Ventolin Side Effects

Fewer than 1 in 10,000 patients experience an allergic reaction to a ventolin inhaler. Symptoms include swelling of the face, further difficulty breathing and itchy skin. You should seek medical assistance immediately.

If you experience the following side effects, talk to your doctor immediately:

  • Fast heart palpitations
  • Uneven heartbeat

Fewer than 1 in 10 people will experience these effects.

Ventolin Side Effects

  • Feeling shaky
  • Headache
  • Mouth and throat irritation
  • Muscle cramps
  • A low level of potassium in your blood
  • Increased blood flow to your extremities
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • Changes in behaviour i.e. excitability

Side effects such as chest pain and angina may also occur, though the frequency of these is not known.

If the medication is not working as effectively as you think it should, do not take extra doses, but consult your doctor.


You must not use the ventolin inhaler if you are allergic to any of the ingredients listed in the “Ingredients” tab.

You should talk to your doctor before using the ventolin inhaler if the following apply to you:

  • You have high blood pressure
  • You have an overactive thyroid
  • You have a history of heart problems i.e. angina
  • You are taking other medicines for asthma
  • You are taking medication to regulate your heart beat

You should consult a doctor before using a ventolin inhaler if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or planning to become pregnant.

Ventolin inhalers are unlikely to affect your ability to drive or operate machinery. However, you should not undertake these activities until you know how the inhaler affects you.

    Ordered thursday lunchtime for collection at my local post office , ready to collect on saturday morning. I actually picked it up monday morning due to my post office closing early. No problem with any of my medicine ordered , exactly what i asked for. I was a bit dubious as it being my first order as i didn't know what i would be getting. But as mentioned above ITS EXACTUALLY WHAT I ASKED FOR. Its a very handy service to know about when you have run out or lost your medication and its here as a back up. Excellent service recieved, will definately use this service again for an emergency. Thank you so much, one very happy costumer.
