About Salbutamol

How to use Salbutamol

There are two types of devices used to deliver salbutamol. Firstly, a Metered Dose Inhaler (MDI) and secondly, a dry powder inhaler.

Both types of device work slightly differently, but deliver the same medicine and have the same effects. Talk to your doctor about which type would suit you best. We offer salbutamol with an MDI through our online service.

Using a Salbutamol MDI (Metered Dose Inhaler)

To use a Salbutamol MDI, remove the mouthpiece cover and shake vigorously. Insert the Salbutamol MDI into the spacer and the opposite end of the spacer into your mouth. Don’t bite the spacer, but make sure your lips create a good seal with the device. Press the canister of the Salbutamol MDI and breathe in and out for 10 breaths. For the subsequent puffs, press the canister again, and breathe in and out for 10 times between each puff. You don’t need to keep your finger pressed on the canister while you are breathing in and out.

Replace the mouthpiece cover right away to avoid dust and other debris entering the inhaler. You should stand up or sit up straight whilst using your salbutamol inhaler. You can take your salbutamol inhaler with or without food.

Before you use your spacer for the first time and once a month during use, soak it in warm water with a little washing up liquid for 15 minutes. Don’t scrub the inside as this might affect the way it works. Rinse and leave to air dry as this helps reduce static formation so that the medicine doesn’t stick to the inside, but is delivered to your lungs. Yous should replace your spacer at least every year.

Children and the elderly often need help with using the inhaler.

Always make sure that you follow your doctor’s prescription and read 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 using salbutamol inhalersPossible side-effects of salbutamol inhalers 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.

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.
