Ventolin Nebules 5mg are administered through a nebuliser to help an individual breathe. They may be used as part of routine management of chronic bronchospasm where an individual is unresponsive to conventional therapy. Ventolin Nebules are also used in the treatment of acute severe asthma.
Ventolin Nebules belong to a class of medicines called bronchodilators. They are used to open and dilate restricted airways which may be causing limited breathing, coughing or wheezing. The active ingredient in Ventolin is salbutamol. Salbutamol also comes in tablet, capsule, syrup and inhaler form. It is only prescribed in nebule form in severe cases that require a nebuliser and quick relief.
A nebuliser converts the salbutamol solution into a fine spray which is then breathed in by the patient. This offers rapid and effective treatment. Ventolin Nebules must not be injected or swallowed. Contact your doctor or a pharmacist if the mist or liquid comes into contact with your eyes. Any solution remaining in the nebuliser after use should be discarded appropriately.
Ventolin Nebules are suitable for adults and children aged 4-11 years old. A doctor will provide an individual with the appropriate dosage. Do not use this medicine if you are allergic to salbutamol or any related substances.
