What are the benefits?
Salamol is a reliever inhaler that works quickly to help relieve an asthma attack and its distressing symptoms. This medication helps to keep the airways open and relaxed, making it easier for you to breathe. It can also be used to help prevent known triggers such as exercise from aggravating symptoms. Because this treatment is inhaled directly into the lungs, your risk of side effects is reduced significantly.
How does it work?
Conditions like asthma cause the airways to narrow, which makes breathing difficult. Salamol is used to relieve such symptoms and asthma attacks. Using the active ingredient salbutamol, it works by acting on the lungs receptors otherwise known as beta 2 receptors. It prohibits the workings of these receptors on the lungs, allowing the airways to become relaxed. Once relaxed, the airways open, which makes it easier for you to breathe and helps the symptoms of an attack to subside.
Who is suitable to use this medication?
The Salamol inhaler is used to relieve an asthma attack or symptoms of asthma when they occur. It should not be used as a preventer treatment. This medication is unsuitable if you are allergic to its active ingredient, salbutamol. If you have diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure or hyperthyroidism or are pregnant or breastfeeding then this medication may be deemed unsuitable.
How do you use Salamol?
How you use the Salamol inhaler or Easi-breathe will depend on factors like the severity of your condition. It is important to speak to your doctor before you begin using your inhaler so you can be sure you are doing so properly. When used as a relief treatment, one puff of either type of Salamol inhaler should be sufficient, but this can be increased to two puffs if necessary. To prevent the onset of an attack, two puffs 10-15 minutes before you begin exercise or exposure to known triggers is recommended.
Make sure you do not exceed eight puffs a day when using either the CFC-free inhaler or the Easi-breathe inhaler.
What are the side effects?
Salamol, like all prescription medications, may cause side effects. If you experience any side effects you should contact a doctor immediately. Potential side effects with this medication include headaches, tremors, tension, low blood potassium levels, narrowing of the airways and hyperawareness of your heartbeat.
