Is it safe to order online?

If the pharmacy doesn't ask you to complete essential health and medical question, however, this is a telltale sign that the website isn't certified. The website should also display clear signs that it is registered and approved by the relevant authorities. In the UK, this includes being registered by the MHRA, GMC .

Can you buy without a prescription?

To purchase Salamol you will need a prescription. Salamol is an effective asthma medication but it must be prescribed with caution as it can interact with several other medications and is not suitable with medical conditions. Your doctor will look into your current medicines, health and lifestyle before prescribing Salamol. After being prescribed Salamol in-person by your doctor, you can receive repeat prescriptions online.

What is Salamol?

Salamol is a medicine that can be taken to relieve the effects of an asthma attack, or taken before strenuous activities to prevent symptoms from occurring. It contains the active ingredient salbutamol sulphate which is a well known and reliable treatment for breathing difficulties.

How does Salamol work?

The active ingredient salbutamol is a short-acting beta 2 agonist. It can be taken as an immediate emergency treatment or before known breathing difficulty triggers such as frosty air or exercise.

Salbutamol is a bronchodilator and works by stimulating the beta 2 lung receptors. This allows the muscles to relax and the airways to open. This promotes easier breathing and a rapid reduction of symptoms.

Salamol is breathed directly into your lungs to achieve the fastest possible result. When taken during an attack you should start to feel better after five minutes. Salamol provides relief for four to six hours at a time.

People with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) can struggle to breathe despite not having an asthma diagnosis. Salamol is suitable for COPD diseases including chronic bronchitis and emphysema as it opens the airways making it easier to breathe.

How to use Salamol

Salamol is available as an inhaler or an Easi-Breathe inhaler; which you choose to use will depend on your preference and dexterity levels.

Your doctor will prescribe the correct dose of Salamol for you, but in general most people take one to two puffs to relieve breathing difficulties. When used to prevent an attack before a known trigger two puffs 10-15 minutes beforehand is standard.

  • To use the Salamol inhaler you should shake it well and remove the mouthpiece.
  • Breathe out fully and place the inhaler between your lips.
  • Breathe in sharply and press the top simultaneously to release the spray directly into your lungs.
  • Hold your breath and breathe out slowly.
  • Always replace the cap once you have taken your dose.
  • To use the Easi-Breathe you should click the cap until the dose is uncovered, breathe out fully and place the mouthpiece between your lips.
  • Breathe in fully and hold your breath.
  • The dose is released as you breathe in, so it's important to keep breathing even when you feel the powder released into your mouth.

You should sit or stand upright when taking both Salamol inhalers and hold the dispensers straight otherwise the dose will not reach your lungs effectively.

You should never exceed the prescribed dose and avoid inhaling more than eight puffs a day. Wait four hours between doses.

Salamol dosages

100 mcg inhaler:

This is a metered dose aerosol inhaler that puffs a fine spray of mist into your mouth. You need to be able to simultaneously press the canister and breathe in deeply. You can use a spacer with the Salamol inhaler if it's required. Ask your doctor for the right type such as the Volumatic spacer.

100 mcg Easi-Breathe:

The Easi-Breathe releases a powder when you breathe in. It's easier to use if you have difficulty coordinating a puffer inhaler. Older people, children and those with joint problems such as arthritis often find the Easi-Breathe simpler to manage.

You should not exceed your stated dose as this increases the likelihood of side effects. If Salamol worsens your symptoms or you don't feel better after taking it see your doctor to find a medicine more suitable for you.

Salamol side effects
