|Drug Class: What is Ventolin and why is it prescribed?|
|Generic Ventolin (Albuterol) is Salbutamol and is a bronchodilator used in treating asthma and other conditions with reversible airway obstruction.|
|Ventolin Mechanism: How does Ventolin work?|
|Asthma is a breathing problem involving widespread narrowing of the airways (bronchial tubes). Airways are breathing passages that allow air to move in and out of the lungs. These airways can be narrowed due to the accumulation of mucus, spasm of the muscles that surround these airways, or swelling of the lining of the airways. Airway narrowing leads to shortness of breath, wheezing, cough, and congestion. Albuterol dilates bronchial airways by relaxing the surrounding bronchial muscles. Albuterol can also be helpful in patients with emphysema and chronic bronchitis when their symptoms are partially related to reversible airway obstruction.|
|Ventolin Dosage: How should you take Ventolin|
|Albuterol inhalations should not be administered more often than prescribed. Excessive use of inhaled albuterol can have adverse effects on the heart. Albuterol inhalations should be administered with proper technique and the specific instructions accompanying the drug packaging should be exactly followed. Use in children should be supervised by an adult. Patients requiring more inhalations for relief of symptoms should seek medical advice.|
