Ventolin Evohaler (salbutamol sulfate): Reviews and patient testimonials


Medication indications

Ventolin Evohaler

Ventolin Evohaler is indicated in adults, adolescents and children aged 4 to 11 years. For babies and children under 4 years of age, see sections 4.2 and 5.1.

Ventolin Evohaler provides short-acting (4 to 6 hour) bronchodilation with fast onset (within 5 minutes) in reversible airways obstruction.

It is particularly suitable for the relief and prevention of asthma symptoms. It should be used to relieve symptoms when they occur, and to prevent them in those circumstances recognised by the patient to precipitate an asthma attack (e.g. before exercise or unavoidable allergen exposure).

Ventolin Evohaler is particularly valuable as relief medication in mild, moderate or severe asthma, provided that reliance on it does not delay the introduction and use of regular inhaled corticosteroid therapy.

I do not use this with a spacer. It can make you feel shaky . You can find information and tips on how to take your inhaler on the Asthma and Lung UK site

I've been using this inhaler or it's equivalent for many years, as I've got older I know need to use a spacer all the time when I need to use it

Can make you feel very light headed plus a rapid heart beat if you tend to take too much when not needed, other than that impact is immediate
