There are various types of asthma inhalers. They contain different types of medication, to provide fast relief or long-acting prevention of asthma symptoms.

Asthma inhalers also have different mechanisms. While some require you to pump, others are breath-activated. Whichever asthma inhaler you use, you must make sure you understand how it works.

Use our fast and convenient service at Zava to order the prescription for your asthma inhaler online.

Fill in our brief questionnaire to let our doctor know which inhaler you are using. Our doctor will make sure it is safe for you to continue your treatment before issuing a prescription to a local pharmacy in Ireland or your home address.

Please note, we can only treat patients who have been using an asthma inhaler for at least 3 months.

A consultation for asthma treatment prescription costs €20.
