Ventolin is used by patients suffering from various respiratory conditions, including asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Salbutamol is short-used for the relief of bronchospasm in conditions such as asthma. It is marketed as Ventolin among other brand names.
Ventolin is not safe for people who may be having issues other than bronchospasms. For instance, if you are currently suffering from high blood pressure, heart disease or congestive heart failure, it will not be helpful.
Ventolin may cause side effects such as headache, nervousness, or dizziness, insomnia or sleep problems, runny or stuffy nose, hoarseness, or irritating cough, dry mouth.
Your Ventolin Inhaler helps you breathe more easily. When your chest is tight or when you are wheezing, the Ventolin opens up the breathing tubes in your lungs. Because your Ventolin Inhaler gives fast relief from your chest symptoms, it is often called a 'reliever puffer'.
