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.

    Ventolin Price and Ventolin Coupon

    VENTOLIN HFA (Albuterol) is an inhaled medication used to treat or prevent bronchospasm. During bronchospasm, the airways of the lungs tighten and it becomes difficult to breathe. Bronchospasm may be caused by a disease like asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or can be induced by exercise. 

    Albuterol and Salbutamol are different generic names for the same medication; they are both names for the generic of VENTOLIN inhaler.

    Albuterol works by activating beta2-adrenergic receptors on the surface of muscle cells in the airway. Activating these receptors causes muscle cells to relax, making it easier to breathe.


    The normal dose is 2 inhalations every 4 to 6 hours. Some patients may use a reduced dose.

    If you are having to use your albuterol inhaler more often than prescribed, let your doctor know. Excessive use may mean that an additional medication will need to be added to improve breathing symptoms.

    VENTOLIN inhalers need to be primed before their first use and when the inhaler has not been used for 2 weeks. Prime VENTOLIN by spraying at least 4 sprays into the air and then shake well. Ask your pharmacist if you need additional assistance.

    The plastic actuator should be cleaned with warm water at least once each week.


    The active ingredient in VENTOLIN is albuterol sulfate.

    Asthma inhaler VENTOLIN contains the inactive propellant HFA-134a.
