What is a Salamol CFC-Free inhaler?
Salamol CFC-Free inhaler is a reliever/rescue inhaler used to treat asthma symptoms. It is short–acting beta-agonists, which means that it gives a very fast relief from asthma symptoms and mild asthma attacks. Drugs, known as short-acting agonist, are salbutamol, which is also known as albutamol in the US.
Salamol helps asthma by reducing the inflammation around the walls of the lungs, which constricts our airways making breathing almost impossible.
In the UK we use salamol inhalers as an emergency relief to our asthma symptoms. We also use the well-known brand Ventolin Inhalers/Evohaler (reliever) that is used in many other countries for treatment of asthma.
Can I use this inhaler to manage my asthma?
Salamol CFC-Free is a rescue inhaler and should only be used whenever you are experiencing any symptoms. This type of inhaler should not be used to manage severe asthma as it will only relieve your symptoms for a short period of time.
To help manage your asthma and keep it under control you need a preventer inhaler instead.
If you find the need to use your salamol inhaler on a regular basis, then you should see your doctor, because your asthma is not under control and you risk having a severe asthma attack.
There are exceptions where you will be doing some form of physical activities that causes you to use your inhaler more than usual, but to use it regularly on a daily basis is often not a good sign.
You should always clean your inhaler, at least once a week, to prevent any blockage. After using your inhaler for a while medicine will build up in the actuator mouth piece and this prevents a full dose from being taken.
Where can I buy one?
I would strongly advise you to get a prescription from your doctor first, before buying this drug, to make sure that it is safe for you to use. He/she will also give you the best option for treating your asthma.
You can do an online consultation if you wish to buy your inhaler(s) online instead.
