Ventolin - Overview
Ventolin is a medication available in inhaler form used to treat and prevent bronchospasm in some people with asthma. People who need a Ventolin inhaler prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Ventolin HFA inhaler when appropriate to do so.
What Is Ventolin Used For?
Ventolin HFA is a medication that contains the active ingredient albuterol sulfate - similar to ProAir HFA and Proventil. Ventolin is used in preventing bronchospasm in some people who have conditions such as asthma that cause reversible bronchospasm. The initial targets of the Ventolin inhaler are beta2-adrenergic receptors in the airways. Through these receptors, Ventolin causes increases in cyclic AMP levels in cells which activates protein kinase A and lowers calcium concentrations in the cells. The overall effect of these actions is to cause relaxation of smooth muscles in the airways, reducing bronchospasm. Ventolin is sometimes used concomitantly with ipratropium. Ventolin differs from Xopenex which contains levalbuterol.
Ventolin - Dosage and Coupon
For many adults, the starting Ventolin dosage is one inhalation every 4-6 hours although some providers, in their judgement, may recommend two Ventolin inhalations on the same schedule. People prescribed Ventolin often wonder how to use a Ventolin inhaler. The first step to using Ventolin HFA is priming it to make sure that the right amount of medication is in each actuation. Priming the Ventolin HFA inhaler should be done before the first use or when the inhaler has been dropped or when it has not been used for more than 14 days but consult the package insert for exact details. Priming Ventolin HFA usually involves shaking the Ventolin inhaler and releasing test sprays away from the face. Ventolin inhalers are moderately affordable, costing approximately $30 for one Ventolin HFA inhaler containing 18 grams with 90 mcg of albuterol base. Ventolin coupons are available online and through the manufacturer at times. Some insurance plans may also cover costs associated with a Ventolin inhaler prescription.
Can I Buy Ventolin Online?
The Ventolin HFA inhaler is a prescription medication which makes buying Ventolin online more difficult in the United States. And, because Ventolin requires a prescription from a medical provider, Ventolin OTC is not available for purchase at pharmacies. People who need a Ventolin inhaler prescription, however, can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Ventolin HFA inhalers when appropriate to do so.
Ventolin - Side Effects
Ventolin HFA can cause side effects in some people. Side effects that can result from Ventolin use include nausea, palpitations, tremor, anxiety, cough, sweating and pain. People should be monitored when using albuterol as it can cause paradoxical bronchospasm. Ventolin and alcohol should not be used together. People who have a known hypersensitivity to Ventolin should not use the medication. Prior to using Ventolin prescription medication, it is necessary to discuss side effects and other concerns with one's medical provider and pharmacist.
