Product information

Salamol is a type of asthma treatment called a reliever, and is made by IVAX. It is available in a range of forms, including: a standard inhaler; an Easi-Breathe inhaler; and as a Steri-Neb, or nebuliser solution (only the inhaler versions are available through our service).

Relievers are used as required to alleviate symptoms. They can also be used to help prevent the effects of asthma when applied 15 minutes prior to: exposure to a known trigger which might be the presence of an allergen; or exercise.

  1. Fast-acting relief
  2. Comes as an inhaler
  3. Easi-breathe version also available

Asthma is not uncommon. In the UK alone, it is estimated that around 5.5 million people live with the condition. The symptoms associated with it are easy to spot, and include coughing, breathlessness and wheezing. They generally surface when the person with the condition comes into contact with an irritant. Frequent triggers are smoke, cold air, dust, chemical residue, and allergens such as pollen. Some people also experience flare-ups when they exercise, and others may get them during times of stress.

Symptoms can sometimes manifest in severe episodes, called asthma attacks. These will usually require medical attention; but milder instances are treatable with short acting beta-2 agonists, like Salamol, which provide short-term relief.

Inflammation in the airways which connect the lungs to the windpipe is the principal cause of asthma. This is thought to come about as a result of heightened immune response to certain irritants. When these airways are inflamed, the surrounding muscle walls become tense and this makes airways narrower. The result is an increased difficulty to breathe. This is compounded by the production of excess phlegm, which can also occur as a consequence of asthma exacerbation.

The active constituent in Salamol is a chemical called salbutamol. It works by providing stimulation to beta-2 receptors. In doing this, it helps the muscles lining the airways to relax, dilating bronchi and allowing for the easier passage of air. This facilitates smoother breathing, and reduces symptoms.

It is important if you think your asthma is getting worse or your reliever treatment is not working as well as it should to speak to your doctor. They may need to issue alternative forms of medication.

If you are not currently using asthma treatment and are experiencing symptoms, you should see your doctor. They will assess your condition and prescribe a suitable treatment or, if necessary, refer you to a specialist.

Patients looking to renew their existing prescription and buy Salamol can do so through our secure online pharmacy platform. Take our clinical consultation, and once your prescription has been issued, our UK-based dispensing pharmacy will fulfil your order and ship your treatment to you by secure next-day delivery.

Make sure you follow the directions issued by your prescriber when using this treatment, and read the patient information leaflet fully before use.

  1. Take as directed.

For Salamol Easi-Breathe:

  1. Apply when required to relieve asthma symptoms.
  2. The starting dose is usually one puff. This can be increased to two puffs where appropriate.
  3. Leave at least four hours between doses and do not take more than four puffs in any one 24-hour period.
  4. Flip down the cover.
  5. Prior to use, spray two test shots into the air.
  6. Shake well.
  7. Breathe out as far as you can comfortably.
  8. Put the inhaler to your mouth as per the instructions.
  9. Inhale until the dose has been dispensed.
  10. Hold your breath for as close to 10 seconds as you can before breathing out again.
  11. If you are taking more than one puff, wait for one minute before re-applying the above steps.

For Salamol Inhaler:

  1. Administer as required.
  2. One puff is the standard initial dose. This may be raised to two puffs as and when necessary.
  3. Allow a period of four hours between doses, and do not take more than four puffs in any one day.
