Buy Ventolin Inhaler
Ventolin is a powerful bronchodilator, which is one of the most popular drugs for the treatment of airway obstruction. It promotes a rapid, safe and effective improvement of respiratory mechanics.
Ventolin is prescribed for the symptomatic treatment of several respiratory diseases, including emphysema, bronchial asthma, chronic bronchitis or exercise-induced bronchospasm.
CFC-free inhaler Ventolin is used most often to facilitate breathing in bronchial spasms. However, this bronchodilator is also available in the pharmaceutical market in other dosage forms, including:
- sugar free syrup
- obstetric injection
- respirator solution
- nebulising solution
- powder for inhalation
Ventolin improves breathing mechanics approximately 5-15 minutes after use. Therefore, it can be used for emergency relief of bronchoconstriction.
The duration of the therapeutic effect of Ventolin is approximately 3-6 hours. During this time, the bronchodilator prevents repeated bronchial spasms.
Ventolin works by relaxing the muscles in the bronchi and increasing the permeability of the airways. Thus, Ventolin contributes to a significant relief of the symptoms of respiratory diseases, such as coughing, wheezing in breathing, inability to exhale, shortness of breath or severe suffocation.
To establish an adequate dose of this bronchodilator, you must consult a healthcare provider. The therapeutic dose of Ventolin is calculated according to such criteria, as the patient's age, type or intensity of bronchial spasms.
- The average therapeutic dose of Ventolin for adults is 200 μg per day.
- With a high sensitivity of the airways, you can use the maximum dose of this bronchodilator, which is 800 mcg per day.
- Children with respiratory diseases are prescribed 200 μg to 400 μg of Ventolin, divided into several uses within 24 hours.
- One dose of Ventolin to facilitate exercise-induced bronchospasm is 200 μg. This dose should be taken 15 minutes after physical activity.
It is not recommended to take additional doses of Ventolin to increase its effectiveness. The use of high doses of this bronchodilator can cause an overdose, which is accompanied by hypertension, arrhythmia or tachycardia.
For the most effective treatment of asthma, Ventolin is often prescribed in combination with various anti-inflammatory drugs, such as Pulmicort, Flovent or Asmanex.
Because of the high risk of premature birth, Ventolin is contraindicated in pregnancy. Pregnant women should consult a therapist to choose an alternative method for treating airway obstruction.
In addition, Ventolin can help reduce potassium levels in patients with diabetes or other metabolic disorders. To reduce the risk of hypokalemia, it is recommended that the potassium test be carried out regularly, while using Ventolin.
Ventolin may cause cardiovascular adverse reactions, such as arrhythmia or tachycardia. Therefore, if there are cardiovascular risks, this bronchodilator should be used with caution.
Other adverse effects of Ventolin are headache, muscle cramps, irritation of the throat or mouth, tremor of the hands. These adverse reactions are mild in nature and completely pass through the further use of Ventolin.
