Ventolin Inhaler helps you to breathe more easily. When your chest is tight or when you are wheezing, the Ventolin opens up the breathing tubes in your lungs. Your medicine is known as a bronchodilator. Because your Ventolin Inhaler gives fast relief from your chest symptoms, it is often called a 'reliever puffer'.
The pharmacist's label will usually tell you how many puffs to take and how often to use your Ventolin Inhaler. If you are not sure, ask your doctor or pharmacist. If your chest condition suddenly gets worse, your doctor may tell you to take extra puffs of your Ventolin Inhaler. If you take extra puffs and do not get relief, tell your doctor immediately.
