Product information

Ventolin is an asthma treatment, made by UK company GSK. As a reliever treatment, it is used when someone experiences symptoms related to their asthma, such as breathing problems. It might also be applied to avert an asthma attack, which can involve the gradual or sudden onset of breathlessness, coughing or wheezing.

The medication is supplied in a wide range of forms: as an accuhaler; evohaler; a respirator solution; and as a syrup. However, only the Accuhaler and Evohaler forms are available to buy from our pharmacy.

Which one you use will depend on which method of application you find easiest to use, and the severity of your symptoms. For instance, users who find inhalers difficult may opt to use the syrup instead; while those who have severe symptoms and require a larger dose may be directed by a doctor to employ the respiratory solution, which is applied via a nebuliser.

Over 5 million people in the UK alone are thought to be affect by asthma. It occurs when the immune system responds to a trigger, and produces an inflammatory response. A trigger might be caused by dust or other particles in the air, smoke, exercise, an allergy or a chemical.

The immune system will then release a chemical transmitter, which, as well as causing inflammation, makes the muscle walls around the windpipe and connecting airways tighten, and increases the production of mucus. This narrows the airways and causes the aforementioned symptoms to occur.

Treatment for asthma is provided in two strands; prevention and relief. While preventers work by limiting the immune response and making an attack less likely, relievers are taken while symptoms are active. They contain a substance called a beta-2 agonist, which in the case of Ventolin is called salbutamol, and this works by relaxing muscle walls affected by asthma. This then dilates the airways, and makes it easier for the user to breathe.

We provide this treatment on a renewal or repeat basis only. If you have asthma, haven’t used this treatment before or are not using it currently, or finding that your current treatment isn’t working, speak to your GP or specialist. They will assess your symptoms, and be able to issue the most appropriate medication.

Patients looking to renew their prescription for Ventolin and buy it online can do so with our consultation service. Take our questionnaire, and your case will be reviewed by one of our GMC-registered doctors or GPhC-registered prescribers. Following approval, a prescription will be issued and sent to our UK dispensing pharmacy. Treatments are shipped using special courier services, and in most cases you’ll receive your medicine within one working day.

Following the instructions provided with your medicine and adhering to the directions issued by your prescriber will help you to ensure that Ventolin is effective.

  1. Take as directed by your doctor.
  2. Ventolin is applied when the user experiences asthma symptoms such as breathing problems, coughing or wheezing, or an asthma attack.

Ventolin Accuhaler

  1. One inhalation is taken to relieve asthma.
  2. To prevent an attack before coming into contact with a trigger, one inhalation is taken 15 minutes prior.
  3. Remove the outer covering.
  4. Push back the lever until you hear it click.
  5. Breathe out, and then put the accuhaler to your mouth.
  6. Inhale deeply through the device.
  7. Try to hold your breath for 10 seconds.
  8. Breathe normally.
  9. Do not exceed four inhalations in any one day or the amount prescribed.

Ventolin Evohaler

  1. A typical dose may be: one to two puffs administered to relieve symptoms; and in some cases two puffs may be taken a quarter of an hour prior to encountering an expected trigger.
  2. If taken as regular treatment, the inhaler should be used only when required. 
  3. Do not exceed eight puffs in any single 24 hour duration.
  4. Test the inhaler by spraying a test dose safely into the air before first use.
  5. Stand up straight during use.
  6. Take off the mouth cover and ensure it is free of debris.
  7. Breathe out as much as is comfortable.
  8. Without biting down, position the mouthpiece in your mouth between your teeth and with your lips around it.
  9. Breathe in through your mouth.  Just after starting to breathe in, press down on the top of the canister.  This releases one dose of the inhaler. Do this while breathing in steadily and deeply.   
  10. Continue to breathe steadily in then hold your breath for a few seconds, before breathing normally.
  11. Those who are taking a second puff should wait for 30 seconds before administering the next one.

For both treatments:

  1. Never take more than the amount prescribed.
