The active ingredient in Ventolin inhaler is called salbutamol. Salbutamol is a short-acting beta-2 agonist that stimulates beta-2 receptors in the lungs. This causes the muscles in the airways to relax and the airways to open.
With conditions such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, the airways narrow and it is difficult for air to get in and out of the lungs. By opening the airways, salbutamol makes breathing easier.
Ventolin pressurized gas inhalation is used by inhaling through the mouth. The dosage is set individually depending on the severity of the asthma.
1 dose = 1 inhalation = 100 mcg
For the treatment of acute bronchospasm, the dose of 100 to 200 micrograms is prescribed for adults and adolescents over 12 years of age.
When Ventolin inhaler is used for the prevention of predictable asthma, 200 mcg is typically prescribed for adults and adolescents over 12 years of age.
Ventolin spray can also be used if necessary. In this case, the patient should apply up to 200 mcg four times a day.
The maximum dose is 8 puffs (800 mcg) every 24 hours. The interval between 2 consecutive inhalations is 30 seconds and the interval between two applications is four to six hours.
