Ventolin, also known as albuterol sulfate inhalation aerosol, is indicated for the following purposes:

  1. Treatment or Prevention of Bronchospasm: Ventolin is used for the treatment or prevention of bronchospasm in adult and pediatric patients aged 4 years and older with reversible obstructive airway disease.
  2. Prevention of Exercise-Induced Bronchospasm: It is also indicated for the prevention of exercise-induced bronchospasm in adult and pediatric patients aged 4 years and older.

Ventolin contains albuterol sulfate, a bronchodilator that helps to relax the muscles in the airways and increase airflow to the lungs.

Do’s

  • Before starting the use of Ventolin and with each prescription refill, carefully review the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist. For proper usage and maintenance of the mouthpiece, follow the illustrated directions. If you have any queries, seek guidance from your healthcare provider.
  • Ensure to shake the canister well before use and follow the provided instructions for test sprays in the air if you are using a new canister, haven't used it for 2 weeks or more, or if the inhaler has been dropped. A fine mist indicates proper functioning. 
  • Inhale this medication by mouth as directed by your healthcare provider, typically every 4 to 6 hours as needed. The dosage is determined by your medical condition and response to treatment.
  • If using this medication to prevent asthma triggered by exercise, follow your healthcare provider's instructions, usually taking 2 puffs 15 to 30 minutes before exercise.
  • Using a spacer device with this medication is recommended. For further information, consult your healthcare provider.
  • If prescribed two inhalations, wait at least 1 minute between them. If using other inhalers simultaneously, allow at least 1 minute between the use of each medication.
  • Always keep this quick-relief inhaler with you. Keep a record of the number of inhalations used, and discard the inhaler after using the specified number of inhalations on the product package. Also, count test sprays used to prime the inhaler.
  • Learn which inhalers are for daily use (controller drugs) and which are for sudden worsening of breathing (quick-relief drugs). Seek advice from your healthcare provider on what to do in case of new or worsening symptoms and when to seek immediate medical help.
  • Inform your healthcare provider if your symptoms do not improve or worsen.
