About Salamol Easi-Breathe
Salamol Easi-Breathe is a salbutamol inhaler (blue / reliever inhaler). It is activated by breathing, meaning the inhaler automatically releases a puff of salbutamol upon inspiration. A similar breathing-activated salbutamol inhaler is the Airomir Autohaler.
This type of breath-activated inhaler is especially useful for patients who have difficulty using standard inhalers. Standard inhalers require the user to push down on the end of the container of the inhaler at the same time as breathing. Some people find this coordination difficult and benefit from automatic activation by a “breath-activated”inhaler.
As with other salbutamol inhalers, the Salamol Easi-Breathe inhaler is used to relieve the chest strain of asthma. It is used as needed, with one or two inhalations to relieve symptoms for up to 6 hours.
Side effects of Salamol Easi-Breathe
The side effects of Salamol Easi-Breathe are the same as other salbutamol inhalers. The most frequently occurring side effects tend to occur immediately after the use of inhalers and are related to the dose of salbutamol (number of inhalations) and usually last a few minutes or hours.
The common side effects of salbutamol (more than 1 in 100 people) are a feeling of tension and headache, a feeling of trembling and dizziness.
Other side effects occur less frequently and are not always dose-related. Refer to the manufacturer’s Brochure for Salamol Easi-Breathe.
A patient who experiences increased shortness of breath or chest pain after using a salbutamol inhaler should seek immediate medical advice.
