Description

What is asthma?

Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition that affects the airways in the lungs. It causes the airways to become inflamed and narrowed, making it difficult for individuals with asthma to breathe. This inflammation and narrowing of the airways can lead to various symptoms, including:

  1. Shortness of breath
  2. Wheezing
  3. Coughing
  4. Chest tightness

Asthma symptoms can range from mild to severe and may vary over time. Triggers for asthma symptoms can also vary from person to person and may include allergens (such as pollen, dust mites, or pet dander), respiratory infections, cold air, exercise, smoke, or other irritants.

Asthma is a chronic condition, but it can be managed with the help of medications, lifestyle changes, and avoiding triggers. Common asthma medications include bronchodilators, which help open up the airways, and anti-inflammatory drugs that reduce airway inflammation.

What are Ventolin inhalers and what are they used for?

Ventolin inhalers provide effective short-term relief from asthma and can stop asthma symptoms from occurring after exercise. Ventolin is the most popular type of ‘reliever’ inhaler. The active ingredient is salbutamol, which will dilate the airways and ease breathing within five minutes. This is a very reliable inhaler for emergency asthma attacks.

How does Ventolin work?

There are two general types of medicine contained in inhalers. ‘Preventers’ usually contain corticosteroids. These are taken regularly – they reduce inflammation in the airways, controlling the chance of an asthma attack.

Salbutamol-based inhalers, including Ventolin, are ‘Relievers’. These are used when necessary, to ease and relieve symptoms of asthma. Ventolin can also be used preemptively before you exercise or encounter an allergen. If your asthma is mild, you may only need a reliever inhaler. Ventolin can be used alongside a steroid-based preventer inhaler in serious cases.

Salbutamol is a type of medicine called a short-acting beta-2-agonist. When stimulated, the lungs’ beta 2 receptors relax the muscles in the airways. This causes the airways to expand, which relieves asthma symptoms, such as coughing, wheezing, tightness of the chest and shortness of breath.

Alternatives to Ventolin

Asthma is not a condition that can be effectively treated with over the counter medications. If you are looking for alternative asthma medications because your asthma is not controlled or if you want a different inhaler because you are experiencing side effects you will need to speak with your GP at your regular asthma review. Please do not ‘try’ a new inhaler without seeing your GP first.

You should also speak to your GP if you’re experiencing severe asthma, as it may be that you’d benefit from seeking other treatments for your symptoms. These other asthma treatments may include tablets and/or injections.

We recommend you have a regular check up with your regular GP to ensure your inhalers are still keeping your asthma controlled and are still the best course for you.
