Frequently Asked Questions
What is Ventolin HFA and how does it work?
Ventolin HFA (Salbutamol) is a bronchodilator used to relax the muscles of the lungs, allowing air to move into them more freely. Ventolin is used to treat acute symptoms of shortness of breath, and is not meant to be taken as a preventive medication.
It’s also used to treat bronchospasms (a sudden, uncontrollable tightening of the airways in your lungs), by relaxing the muscles in the airways and allowing air to move freely through.
What are the uses for Ventolin HFA?
The most common use for Ventolin HFA is as a treatment for people who have asthma. It works both as daily maintenance, and to help minimize and soothe asthma attacks.
You could also be given a Ventolin prescription if you have certain types of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
How do you use Ventolin HFA?
Ventolin is taken through inhalation via a “puffer”.
Remove the cover from the mouthpiece on the puffer and place it in your mouth. Exhale, and then press down on the top of the canister while inhaling. Hold the vapour in your lungs for a count of 3-5 seconds and then exhale slowly.
Repeat as instructed on the container.
Ventolin HFA’s dosage is controlled by the canister when it’s released. Always follow the instructions given by your doctor for how often it can be used.
What are the side effects and risks of Ventolin HFA?
Before you get a Ventolin prescription online, be sure to talk to your doctor about possible side effects and risks associated with the use of Ventolin HFA.
Common side effects include:
- Shakiness or trembling
- Irregular or increased heart beat
- Hives, welts or skin rash
- Difficulty breathing or swallowing
- Shortness of breath

You should never exceed the dosage listed on your Ventolin prescription, as there have been reported cases of Ventolin overdoses causing death in some patients.
If you think your Ventolin prescription isn’t working properly, talk to your doctor about changing your dosage or prescription. In an emergency situation where Ventolin is not helping, you should go to a hospital or seek immediate medical attention.
Who should not use Ventolin HFA?
If you think Ventolin HFA could help with your respiratory issues, be sure to talk to a doctor.
