Albuterol vs. Ventolin?
The albuterol I'm using is ProAir. The kind I took as a kid didn't make me feel this speedy unless I had a lot of it. Asked by Sanora Allbee 1 year ago.

I have had asthma all my life. When I was a kid, I had to have a rescue inhaler around me nearly all the time. About fifteen years ago, a doctor put me on Flovent once a day and my asthma has been under control ever since. However, I occasionally (rarely) still need a rescue inhaler (long hikes, smoggy days, etc.) from time to time. But when I use Albuterol (the stuff I used as a kid) I feel like a heart attack is imminent and/or I am going to have a panic attack! But Ventolin doesn't do this... isn't it the same stuff?

I have a question. Ventolin consistently causes my 6 year old son to have much more trouble breathing. His airway closes off and coughs more than he would without it. When he uses Albuterol it works right away and he can breath. Why would this happen if they are exactly the same? Answered by Hyacinth Peressini 1 year ago.

Ventolin = Proair = Albuterol. Albuterol is the generic, the other two are brand names. The poster above me is talking about the switch to HFA's instead of CFC's in the MDI propellent. This is good, as HFA's allow for a smaller partical size which means more deposition in your lungs. If you are using the new HFA type of Albuterol MDI you might be getting 'jumpy' because you are getting a lot more of the medication in your lungs then you used to and thus you are getting a bigger B1 side-effect.

I was feeling short of breath so I took my inhaler and the went out in the freezing cold for a walk and now my chest has a pain in it! Why? And is this my asthma:- I have to keep taking a deep breath to feel satisfied but now my neck and upper back is aching from it! What could it be? What are possible side effects of taking a steriod inhaler and ventolin when I don't have asthma too? Answered by Mui Galano 1 year ago.

The ventolin shouldn`t cause the chest pain, that was most likely caused due to the cold air. Cold air is a trigger for many people who have asthma. Your neck and back hurt because you are using your breathing accessory muscles which are in that area when you are taking those deep breaths, so you are just tiring those muscles out. Steroid inhalers work over time to prevent the allergic reaction that triggers the asthma from starting the chain of reactions that leads to the inflammation, airway tightening, and secretions that occur with asthma. The ventolin is a short term reliever that activates your sympathetic nervous system in order to dilate your bronchioles. I dont believe there are any negative side effects to using them if you don`t have asthma, they just might not have any effect. Answered by Terra Butter 1 year ago.


Asthma Ventolin inhaler question about side affects?
Ok so my mom is on the Ventolin Asthma inhaler and she has been taking it for 2 months. When she took her puff tonight she started having a heavy chest, breathing issues, fainting spells and anxiousness. is this normal? (this is the first time she has had these side affects) Asked by Latosha Belile 1 year ago.

It is quite common to experience these symptoms. Depending on the amount of Ventolin that one takes as to what, and how bad the side affects are. It may be that she has taken more puffs than usual. Another reason she may be experiencing these symptoms when she hasn't other times may be because she wasn't experiencing asthma symptoms as badly as what she has other times and the Ventolin is not being used trying to open up the lung passageways, and is affecting her in this way. When you say that she has been taking it for two months, do you mean constantly? Like everyday or every few days? Because by having Ventolin more than three times a weeks can actually make your asthma worse. If she is needing it this frequently she may need to be put on a steroid treatment (a preventer like flixotide or singluair or another type). So it might be something that you might want to discuss with your doctor. But bottom line is, don't be worried about these symptoms as long as you are sure that they are only from the Ventolin, or are pretty sure. It's best not to take Ventolin every few days, especially if you don't need it (not that I'm saying she doesn't). Maybe just try taking 2 puffs, and if that doesn't help try another two four minutes later or just follow her action plan (if she has one). Good luck with it and I hope your mum is feeling more like herself soon. Asthma is a horrible disease to suffer with, trust me I've had it for about 12 years. But you might want to advise her to see a doctor and see how you go. :D Answered by Ernie Flournay 1 year ago.

The most common side effects of Ventolin are tremors, anxiety, headache, and heart palpitations. Some of her issues sound like they could be a severe allergic reaction i.e. the fainting and breathing issues. Allergies can develop at any time and can be life threatening. She should see a doctor to determine exactly what's going on and whether she needs to be put on a different medication. Answered by Adelaide Swarthout 1 year ago.

My brother is an asthmatic and after ten years his asthma has shown no sign of improving. He has been to several doctors but they didn't help much.

Answered by Erasmo Geidl 1 year ago.

Ventolin (salbutamol) is specifically indicated in the following conditions: Acute asthma Symptom relief during maintenance therapy of asthma and other conditions with reversible airways obstruction (including COPD and bronchitis) Protection against exercise-induced asthma Can be aerosolized with a nebulizer for patients with cystic fibrosis, along with ipratropium bromide, acetylcysteine, and pulmozyme. The drug was an instant success, and has been used for the treatment of asthma ever since The most common side effects are of fine tremor, nervousness, headache, muscle cramps, dry mouth, and palpitation.Other symptoms may be tachycardia (rapid heart rate), arrhythmias, flushing, myocardial ischaemia, and disturbances of sleep and behaviour. Rarely occurring, but of importance, are allergic reactions of paradoxical bronchospasm, urticaria, angioedema, hypotension, and collapse, whilst high doses may cause hypokalaemia (low potassium levels), especially in patients with renal failure and those on certain diuretics and xanthine derivaties.

Ventolin is widely prescribed in Canada to treat asthma and other lung problems. I've been using it for years. It is an inhaled corti-steroid and provides fast inflammation relief. It is called a "rescue" inhaler and is usually used in conjuction with with another drug that has longer lasting inflammation relief. Answered by Ardis Flugence 1 year ago.

Is ventolin inhaler only for asthma?
Im just wondering if is only for asthmatic persons. Is it ok to use for the person who cant breath normally? I mean he felt a tightness on his chest, so Im wondering if he should take inhaler too. Asked by Leanora Pro 1 year ago.

ventolin (albuterol) is indicated for use in asthma as a rescue inhaler. It's also used in some other respiratory conditions in older populations, but nothing he has. If he's experiencing chest tightness, wheezing and similar symptoms like waking up in the middle of the night wheezing, then he should go get checked out by his doctor. You should own a spirometer to measure how much air you can blow out to compare your lung function. Why not have him do the same when he's having symptoms to see if he actually has asthma or not. A tightness on on his chest is meaningless unless he's having multiple symptoms that are occurring often and affecting his quality of life. Answered by Harrison Pozos 1 year ago.

Answered by Melodee Sherbon 1 year ago.

No ventolin is a Short Acting Beta Agonist also called Salbutamol. Its normal and safe to use Ventolin with a Long acting Beta Agonist. The Long Acting Beta Agonist is to keep your airways relaxed and prevent asthma attacks, these inhalers are sometimes referred to as protectors. Ventolin is a reliever which is used to open your airways up when you have an attack. So yes its safe to take Ventolin and a LABA. I've been taking Ventolin & Seretide (Salemeterol) which is another brand of one of the LABA in Advair for many years now with no ill effect. Answered by Herbert Sundseth 1 year ago.

I have a question. Ventolin consistently causes my 6 year old son to have much more trouble breathing. His airway closes off and coughs more than he would without it. When he uses Albuterol it works right away and he can breath. Why would this happen if they are exactly the same? Answered by Justa Bellingtier 1 year ago.

Ventolin = Proair = Albuterol. Albuterol is the generic, the other two are brand names. The poster above me is talking about the switch to HFA's instead of CFC's in the MDI propellent. This is good, as HFA's allow for a smaller partical size which means more deposition in your lungs. If you are using the new HFA type of Albuterol MDI you might be getting 'jumpy' because you are getting a lot more of the medication in your lungs then you used to and thus you are getting a bigger B1 side-effect.

I was feeling short of breath so I took my inhaler and the went out in the freezing cold for a walk and now my chest has a pain in it! Why? And is this my asthma:- I have to keep taking a deep breath to feel satisfied but now my neck and upper back is aching from it! What could it be? What are possible side effects of taking a steriod inhaler and ventolin when I don't have asthma too? Answered by Serena Staum 1 year ago.

The ventolin shouldn`t cause the chest pain, that was most likely caused due to the cold air. Cold air is a trigger for many people who have asthma. Your neck and back hurt because you are using your breathing accessory muscles which are in that area when you are taking those deep breaths, so you are just tiring those muscles out. Steroid inhalers work over time to prevent the allergic reaction that triggers the asthma from starting the chain of reactions that leads to the inflammation, airway tightening, and secretions that occur with asthma. The ventolin is a short term reliever that activates your sympathetic nervous system in order to dilate your bronchioles. I dont believe there are any negative side effects to using them if you don`t have asthma, they just might not have any effect. Answered by Sherrell Glaze 1 year ago.


Asthma Ventolin inhaler question about side affects?
Ok so my mom is on the Ventolin Asthma inhaler and she has been taking it for 2 months. When she took her puff tonight she started having a heavy chest, breathing issues, fainting spells and anxiousness. is this normal? (this is the first time she has had these side affects) Asked by Justin Saintignon 1 year ago.

It is quite common to experience these symptoms. Depending on the amount of Ventolin that one takes as to what, and how bad the side affects are. It may be that she has taken more puffs than usual. Another reason she may be experiencing these symptoms when she hasn't other times may be because she wasn't experiencing asthma symptoms as badly as what she has other times and the Ventolin is not being used trying to open up the lung passageways, and is affecting her in this way. When you say that she has been taking it for two months, do you mean constantly? Like everyday or every few days? Because by having Ventolin more than three times a weeks can actually make your asthma worse. If she is needing it this frequently she may need to be put on a steroid treatment (a preventer like flixotide or singluair or another type). So it might be something that you might want to discuss with your doctor. But bottom line is, don't be worried about these symptoms as long as you are sure that they are only from the Ventolin, or are pretty sure. It's best not to take Ventolin every few days, especially if you don't need it (not that I'm saying she doesn't). Maybe just try taking 2 puffs, and if that doesn't help try another two four minutes later or just follow her action plan (if she has one). Good luck with it and I hope your mum is feeling more like herself soon. Asthma is a horrible disease to suffer with, trust me I've had it for about 12 years. But you might want to advise her to see a doctor and see how you go. :D Answered by Lurlene Deuschel 1 year ago.

The most common side effects of Ventolin are tremors, anxiety, headache, and heart palpitations. Some of her issues sound like they could be a severe allergic reaction i.e. the fainting and breathing issues. Allergies can develop at any time and can be life threatening. She should see a doctor to determine exactly what's going on and whether she needs to be put on a different medication. Answered by Zella Berschauer 1 year ago.

Ventolin (salbutamol) is specifically indicated in the following conditions: Acute asthma Symptom relief during maintenance therapy of asthma and other conditions with reversible airways obstruction (including COPD and bronchitis) Protection against exercise-induced asthma Can be aerosolized with a nebulizer for patients with cystic fibrosis, along with ipratropium bromide, acetylcysteine, and pulmozyme. The drug was an instant success, and has been used for the treatment of asthma ever since The most common side effects are of fine tremor, nervousness, headache, muscle cramps, dry mouth, and palpitation.Other symptoms may be tachycardia (rapid heart rate), arrhythmias, flushing, myocardial ischaemia, and disturbances of sleep and behaviour. Rarely occurring, but of importance, are allergic reactions of paradoxical bronchospasm, urticaria, angioedema, hypotension, and collapse, whilst high doses may cause hypokalaemia (low potassium levels), especially in patients with renal failure and those on certain diuretics and xanthine derivaties.

ventolin (albuterol) is indicated for use in asthma as a rescue inhaler. It's also used in some other respiratory conditions in older populations, but nothing he has. If he's experiencing chest tightness, wheezing and similar symptoms like waking up in the middle of the night wheezing, then he should go get checked out by his doctor. You should own a spirometer to measure how much air you can blow out to compare your lung function. Why not have him do the same when he's having symptoms to see if he actually has asthma or not. A tightness on on his chest is meaningless unless he's having multiple symptoms that are occurring often and affecting his quality of life. Answered by Moon Timper 1 year ago.

No ventolin is a Short Acting Beta Agonist also called Salbutamol. Its normal and safe to use Ventolin with a Long acting Beta Agonist. The Long Acting Beta Agonist is to keep your airways relaxed and prevent asthma attacks, these inhalers are sometimes referred to as protectors. Ventolin is a reliever which is used to open your airways up when you have an attack. So yes its safe to take Ventolin and a LABA.

I was feeling short of breath so I took my inhaler and the went out in the freezing cold for a walk and now my chest has a pain in it! Why? And is this my asthma:- I have to keep taking a deep breath to feel satisfied but now my neck and upper back is aching from it! What could it be? What are possible side effects of taking a steriod inhaler and ventolin when I don't have asthma too? Answered by Lakiesha Connett 1 year ago.

The ventolin shouldn`t cause the chest pain, that was most likely caused due to the cold air. Cold air is a trigger for many people who have asthma. Your neck and back hurt because you are using your breathing accessory muscles which are in that area when you are taking those deep breaths, so you are just tiring those muscles out. Steroid inhalers work over time to prevent the allergic reaction that triggers the asthma from starting the chain of reactions that leads to the inflammation, airway tightening, and secretions that occur with asthma. The ventolin is a short term reliever that activates your sympathetic nervous system in order to dilate your bronchioles. I dont believe there are any negative side effects to using them if you don`t have asthma, they just might not have any effect. Answered by Arlen Rahmes 1 year ago.


Asthma Ventolin inhaler question about side affects?
Ok so my mom is on the Ventolin Asthma inhaler and she has been taking it for 2 months. When she took her puff tonight she started having a heavy chest, breathing issues, fainting spells and anxiousness. is this normal? (this is the first time she has had these side affects) Asked by Wynell Jackon 1 year ago.

It is quite common to experience these symptoms. Depending on the amount of Ventolin that one takes as to what, and how bad the side affects are. It may be that she has taken more puffs than usual. Another reason she may be experiencing these symptoms when she hasn't other times may be because she wasn't experiencing asthma symptoms as badly as what she has other times and the Ventolin is not being used trying to open up the lung passageways, and is affecting her in this way. When you say that she has been taking it for two months, do you mean constantly? Like everyday or every few days? Because by having Ventolin more than three times a weeks can actually make your asthma worse. If she is needing it this frequently she may need to be put on a steroid treatment (a preventer like flixotide or singluair or another type). So it might be something that you might want to discuss with your doctor. But bottom line is, don't be worried about these symptoms as long as you are sure that they are only from the Ventolin, or are pretty sure. It's best not to take Ventolin every few days, especially if you don't need it (not that I'm saying she doesn't). Maybe just try taking 2 puffs, and if that doesn't help try another two four minutes later or just follow her action plan (if she has one). Good luck with it and I hope your mum is feeling more like herself soon. Asthma is a horrible disease to suffer with, trust me I've had it for about 12 years. But you might want to advise her to see a doctor and see how you go. :D Answered by Sung Justian 1 year ago.

The most common side effects of Ventolin are tremors, anxiety, headache, and heart palpitations. Some of her issues sound like they could be a severe allergic reaction i.e. the fainting and breathing issues. Allergies can develop at any time and can be life threatening. She should see a doctor to determine exactly what's going on and whether she needs to be put on a different medication. Answered by Rosanna Whitworth 1 year ago.

Ventolin (salbutamol) is specifically indicated in the following conditions: Acute asthma Symptom relief during maintenance therapy of asthma and other conditions with reversible airways obstruction (including COPD and bronchitis) Protection against exercise-induced asthma Can be aerosolized with a nebulizer for patients with cystic fibrosis, along with ipratropium bromide, acetylcysteine, and pulmozyme. The drug was an instant success, and has been used for the treatment of asthma ever since The most common side effects are of fine tremor, nervousness, headache, muscle cramps, dry mouth, and palpitation.Other symptoms may be tachycardia (rapid heart rate), arrhythmias, flushing, myocardial ischaemia, and disturbances of sleep and behaviour. Rarely occurring, but of importance, are allergic reactions of paradoxical bronchospasm, urticaria, angioedema, hypotension, and collapse, whilst high doses may cause hypokalaemia (low potassium levels), especially in patients with renal failure and those on certain diuretics and xanthine derivaties.

Ventolin is widely prescribed in Canada to treat asthma and other lung problems. I've been using it for years. It is an inhaled corti-steroid and provides fast inflammation relief. It is called a "rescue" inhaler and is usually used in conjuction with with another drug that has longer lasting inflammation relief. Answered by Maire Thieman 1 year ago.

Is ventolin inhaler only for asthma?
Im just wondering if is only for asthmatic persons. Is it ok to use for the person who cant breath normally? I mean he felt a tightness on his chest, so Im wondering if he should take inhaler too. Asked by Precious Amon 1 year ago.

ventolin (albuterol) is indicated for use in asthma as a rescue inhaler. It's also used in some other respiratory conditions in older populations, but nothing he has. If he's experiencing chest tightness, wheezing and similar symptoms like waking up in the middle of the night wheezing, then he should go get checked out by his doctor. You should own a spirometer to measure how much air you can blow out to compare your lung function. Why not have him do the same when he's having symptoms to see if he actually has asthma or not. A tightness on on his chest is meaningless unless he's having multiple symptoms that are occurring often and affecting his quality of life. Answered by Waldo Delrosso 1 year ago.

Answered by Kimberley Giannini 1 year ago.

No ventolin is a Short Acting Beta Agonist also called Salbutamol. Its normal and safe to use Ventolin with a Long acting Beta Agonist. The Long Acting Beta Agonist is to keep your airways relaxed and prevent asthma attacks, these inhalers are sometimes referred to as protectors. Ventolin is a reliever which is used to open your airways up when you have an attack. So yes its safe to take Ventolin and a LABA. I've been taking Ventolin & Seretide (Salemeterol) which is another brand of one of the LABA in Advair for many years now with no ill effect. Answered by Edie Vorwald 1 year ago.


Albuterol vs. Ventolin?

I have a question. Ventolin consistently causes my 6 year old son to have much more trouble breathing. His airway closes off and coughs more than he would without it. When he uses Albuterol it works right away and he can breath. Why would this happen if they are exactly the same? Answered by Agustin Agarwal 1 year ago.

Ventolin = Proair = Albuterol. Albuterol is the generic, the other two are brand names. The poster above me is talking about the switch to HFA's instead of CFC's in the MDI propellent. This is good, as HFA's allow for a smaller partical size which means more deposition in your lungs. If you are using the new HFA type of Albuterol MDI you might be getting 'jumpy' because you are getting a lot more of the medication in your lungs then you used to and thus you are getting a bigger B1 side-effect.
