What is Ventolin Inhaler used for?
Ventolin Inhaler is a quick-relief drug used to treat or prevent bronchospasm and manage and prevent breathing problems such as shortness of breath and wheezing that are associated with asthma and COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). It can also be used to prevent symptoms of asthma from occurring during vigorous exercise. The symptoms and asthma and COPD can prevent you from getting the most out of work and leisure time and can make athletics overly strenuous. Ventolin is effective as it helps the airways open up by relaxing the muscles and makes breathing much easier. Unlike other drugs that act slowly, people with asthma can use this during acute asthma attacks to help manage them should they occur. If you have worsening trouble breathing, coughing, wheezing or paradoxical bronchospasm contact your doctor. This can be used in children four years of age or older. If your child is younger than 4 years your doctor may still prescribe this if it is necessary.
