Can you overdose on a blue salbutamol reliever Inhaler? And if you can, is it dangerous??

Yes: It has significant effect on the heart (rate increase) and blood pressure (increase) and inappropriate /overuse was cited as a cause of death of a late teen model who used it to control her appetite. Medications have what is called a safe therapeutic window, which the range starting at where it is effective and when it starts being dangerous. For this one the window is narrow. Use only as directed.

Can you tell me is there a difference between the ventolin medicine inhaler and ventolin salbutamol syrup?

Can you tell me is there a difference between the ventolin medicine inhaler and ventolin salbutamol syrup?

They are similar.: Albuterol the medication in ventolin comes in several forms, a syrup, pills, a puffer inhaler and a liquid that goes in a nebulizer for breathing treatments. Salbutamol is a long acting type of bronchodilator similar to albuterol, but instead of lasting 3-4 hrs, it lasts 12 hours. Both medications are used to treat asthma.

Hi I'm on a salbutamol inhaler, but found that it is making me feel lightheaded, can it be the medication or is it something else.

Hi I'm on a salbutamol inhaler, but found that it is making me feel lightheaded, can it be the medication or is it something else.

Could be inhaler: It could be just side effects from the inhaler. If it only happens after you use the inhaler, than this is what I would assume. If the side effects don't go away within a few minutes, then I would consult with your doctor.

Effects of albuterol: The actions of albuterol include bronchodilation as many are aware, but also mucolytic (breaks up mucus).

Will a Salbutamol inhaler work if I don't have asthma but just a virus? Thanks.

Will a Salbutamol inhaler work if I don't have asthma but just a virus? Thanks.

No, it won't: If you have simply a viral upper respiratory infection, then salmeterol will not help. If there is any question, have your primary care doc listen to your chest to see if she feels additional inhaler treatments are necessary. Feel Better Soon!

I use asthalin inhaler wen I get wheezing or feel breathless! Any other medicine or inhaler is better or it is okay?

I use asthalin inhaler wen I get wheezing or feel breathless! Any other medicine or inhaler is better or it is okay?

OK: The active ingredient is salbutamol which is very good for acute episodes of wheezing. If you are having to use this inhaler often, then I would recommend you visit your physician to possibly be placed on a maintenance inhaler as well.

See doctor: When asthma acts up, it may endanger your baby. So go to see your doctor now to get it under control. Regular use of albuterol inhaler alone may actually make your asthma worse. The time to see your doctor was actually yesterday.

I have a childhood asthma. Gone when I reach puberty however it recurred. Is it safe to use salbutamol inhaler daily during acute attacks?

I have a childhood asthma. Gone when I reach puberty however it recurred. Is it safe to use salbutamol inhaler daily during acute attacks?

Asthma: It is safe but if you are having to use it daily then you need a better maintenance regimen as daily use implies your asthma is not well controlled. Also be aware that salbutamol can cause you to feel "shakey" and cause your heart to race. These are just side effects of this medication.

When I get up from sitting or lying down I cough. I suspect asthma and use salbutamol inhaler for shortness of breath, however I have not been diagnos?

See your doctor: Your cough may be from reflux or asthma (especially if you have shortness of breath). In the latter, that would mean that your asthma is not under control and you need to see your doctor to give you something besides salbutamol for asthma treatment.

Hi Doctor, I am mohan (Age 28/M). I am suffering from asthma/Wheezing problem. Please suggest any salbutamol inhaler.

See your doctor: You need to see your doctor for prescriptions. If you can't get in today then go to an urgent care clinic or emergency room to get evaluation/treatment. HealthTap docs can't prescribe in this format and we can't prescribe outside the US and the states where we have licenses even with the HealthTap Prime live consults.

Mother aged 80 patient copd. Ventilator once. Inhaler asthalin, neubulising asthaline and budecort. Deriphyllyne, prbpm90-100, spo2p. Advice?

Mother aged 80 patient copd. Ventilator once. Inhaler asthalin, neubulising asthaline and budecort. Deriphyllyne, prbpm90-100, spo2p. Advice?

Difficult situation: COPD at advanced age is difficult. You are probably looking at longterm oxygen which has been showing to decrease mortality in the disease. Make sure your mother's medications are maximized. Also consider physical therapy or pulmonary rehab to help her physically deal with her illness.

Cardiology first: You need to be first evaluated by a cardiologist, and please mention that you've got asthma, then you need to be put on an asthma controller medicine when seen by an allergist or a pulmonologist, good luck

Sore throat, short breath and cough and phlegm. Using asthalin inhaler, but doesn't work. What's wrong with me?

Allergies/Asthma: Nasal allergies can cause sore throat and phlegm, and can worsen bouts of asthma. See your physician for adjustments to your medications and to make sure you don't have bronchitis. Drink more non-caffeinated fluids and do some warm salt water gargling.

Hi, my 5 year old daughter has cough and wheezing. Can I give her salbutamol liquid medicine by mouth along with albuterol inhaler?

Better not: If you are giving her the right dose with the right technique, using a spacer. repeating the inhaler dose every 20-30 minutes if needed, till symptoms abate, if no improvement despite that, you need to call her doctor or go to ER, best wishes
