What is it:
Ventolin Evohaler contains a medicine called salbutamol. This belongs to a group of
medicines called fast-acting bronchodilators.
- Bronchodilators help the airways in your lungs to stay open. This makes it easier
for air to get in and out.
- They help to relieve chest tightness, wheezing and cough.
Ventolin Evohaler is used to treat breathing problems in people with asthma and similar
conditions. This includes relieving and preventing asthma brought on by exercise or other
“triggers”. These are things, which bring on asthma symptoms in some people. Common
triggers include house dust, pollen, cats, dogs and cigarette smoke.
Ventolin Evohaler contains a propellant called HFA 134a. This is less harmful to the
environment than older inhalers. Older inhalers may taste differently to Ventolin Evohaler.
This will make no difference to how your medicine works.
Avoid Ventolin Evohaler:
