About Salbutamol

How to use Salbutamol

You should hold the inhaler upside-down, take off the protective cap on the opening of the inhaler. You want to pay attention to inhale deep enough so that the drug gets as far as possible into your lungs.

For this you should deeply breathe in and out three times, and then take a deep breath and action the inhaler (spray) at the very same time. After this, hold your breath for five to ten seconds, and exhale completely. You can breathe in and out again normally or take a few deep breaths (in and out) to help you relax.

If you breathe too rapidly while taking salbutamol, it will radically reduce the effect of the drug which will not be inhaled deeply enough into your airways.

Note that, if needed, a second inhalation can be done at least one minute after the first one. Children and the elderly often need help with using the inhaler.

You can take salbutamol in its inhaler form, but it also exists in a dry-powder inhaler form (Diskus®) as well as syrup, injection or infusion.

Always make sure that you follow your doctor’s prescription and read well the instructions on how to take your salbutamol treatment. For more help, ask your pharmacist to show you how to correctly use the inhaler.

Side effects

There are very few and very uncommon side-effects from taking salbutamol, and even less from inhalers than from tablets. Possible side-effects of salbutamol include headaches, restlessness, muscle spasms and shaky hands. It may also cause taste changes and mouth discomfort.

Less common side-effects include nausea, sweating, high blood sugar and low potassium levels. In patients taking salbutamol tablets, changes in blood pressure and heart problems may occur.

If you already suffer from a heart condition, high blood pressure, an overactive thyroid gland or had a stroke or heart attack recently, you need to see with your doctor if salbutamol is the right treatment for you as you may suffer severe side-effects. Most likely, your doctor will prescribe you an alternative treatment for asthma.
