Product Details

Description:

Chemical Name: ALBUTEROL (al-BYOO-ter-ole)

VENTOLIN INHALER is used for relief and prevention of airway obstruction (bronchospasm) in patients with asthma or exercise-induced asthma. This medication is also used for treating patients with emphysema or chronic bronchitis when their symptoms are related to reversible airway obstruction. Patients will notice the effects of the inhaled form of VENTOLIN within 15 minutes and can last up to 6 hours.

The VENTOLIN INHALER is available only with your doctor's prescription.

CFC free

Directions:

Remember to use this medication only as directed by your health care professional. Do not use more or less of it than what your doctor ordered. Do not stop using VENTOLIN without consulting your doctor as it may increase the chance for developing breathing problems.

The dose of VENTOLIN will be different for each patient's depending on your condition and medical history. The average dose is usually taken by mouth, 3-4 times daily or as directed by your doctor. To help patients remember to take their medication, it is recommended to take it at the same times daily.

This medication does not work immediately and should not be used for sudden attacks of breathing trouble. Your doctor may prescribe a quick-relief inhaler for sudden shortness of breath/asthma attacks while you are taking this medication.

Patients should clean their inhalers at least once a week by removing the metal canister, running water through the plastic actuator for 30 seconds, shaking the actuator to remove excess water, and allowing it to dry.

Excellent Value
The Inhaler I was supplied with was made in Australia by Glaxo-Smith-Kline and costs only 20% off the same device made in the USA. It works perfectly of course.

Great Value
My Dr. prescribes Albuterol for my lung condition. If you order the name brand, you're getting shorted on quantity. I've used Ventolin (not available in the states) for years now and it works beautifully at a much lower price. I highly recommend you talk to your Dr. about allowing the generic substitute of Ventolin over Albuterol.

Breathe Easy
Used as an emergency inhaler. It is small enough to carry in my purse. I feel secure when traveling, knowing that if I have a breathing problem it is instantly available.

What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

We believe that no one can better express the high level of customer service offered at Canada Pharmacy than our own customers.
