About Salamol Easi-Breathe
Salamol Easi-Breathe is a salbutamol inhaler (blue inhaler/reliever inhaler). It is breath-actuated, meaning the inhaler releases a puff of salbutamol automatically during inspiration.
This type of breath actuated inhaler is particularly useful for patients who have difficulty using standard inhalers. Standard inhalers require the user to push down on the end of the inhaler canister at the same time as breathing in. Some people find this coordination difficult and benefit from the automatic triggering from a 'breath actuated' inhaler.
In common with other salbutamol inhalers, the Salamol Easi-Breathe inhaler is used to relieve the chest tightness of asthma. It is used as required, with 1 or 2 puffs taken to relieve symptoms for up to 6 hours.
Asthma is usually managed by GPs or specialist asthma nurses and occasionally by specialist hospital chest clinics. Regular asthma clinic reviews are normally carried out at least once a year, and depending on the severity of the breathing problems, sometimes more frequently.
At clinics doctors and nurses review symptoms, inhaler usage, and technique, and assess the need to increase or decrease treatment.
If the occasional use of a salbutamol inhaler, such as Salamol Easi-Breathe, is insufficient to control symptoms, doctors will usually add a steroid inhaler, which may be used regularly or for periods of a few days or weeks at times when symptoms flare-up. Inhaled steroid inhaler doses can be increased or decreased as required and can, in more severe cases, be supplemented by steroid tablets. Additional management with long acting reliever inhalers or tablets which moderate immune responses may also be required.
Most people who suffer from asthma and related breathing conditions have intermittent symptoms, although some patients may experience severe and continuous problems. Most people need to use their inhalers only occasionally when their symptoms flare-up. When their symptoms settle or disappear, they may need no treatment at all.
Ordering inhalers from Dr Fox
Dr Fox supplies 1 inhaler posted from a UK registered pharmacy. To order, customers must read important medical information and then proceed to answering a medical questionnaire. After answering the yes/no consultation questions, eligible patients may order. Inhalers are only supplied to patients who have previously been prescribed them by their GPs.
Dr Fox services do not remove the need to have regular face-to-face asthma clinic check-ups.
Your GP must be informed about your inhaler usage and any supplies you obtain online. Dr Fox will inform your GP by letter. You will be required to provide GP practice details when ordering.
How to use Salamol
Salamol Easi-Breathe is used as required, with 1 or 2 puffs inhaled to relieve acute asthma symptoms of chest tightness or wheeze for up to 6 hours. It is breath actuated and delivers 100mcg of salbutamol into the lungs per breath. You breathe in slowly and steadily to activate the device, which triggers a puff of salbutamol to be released, and continue breathing in after it activates and then hold your breath for 10 seconds after. It is recommended you only use it up to 4 times a day unless needed for an emergency.
Inhaler technique is usually explained in your asthma clinic. There is a video link below for more information or see the patient information leaflet.

Cautions with Salamol Easi-Breathe
Patients who experience an increased shortness of breath or chest pain immediately after using a salbutamol inhaler should seek immediate medical advice.
Side effects of Salamol Easi-Breathe
The side effects of Salamol Easi-Breathe are the same as other salbutamol inhalers. The most commonly seen side effects tend to occur immediately after inhalers are used and are related to the salbutamol dose (number of puffs), and usually last a few minutes or hours.
The common salbutamol side effects (greater than 1 in 100 people) are headaches, feeling shaky, and dizziness. Less common side effects (less than 1 in 100 people) include muscle cramps, and mouth and throat irritation.
Other side-effects occur less commonly and are not always dose related. See the manufacturer's patient information leaflet for Salamol Easi-Breathe.
Allergic reactions to Salamol are rare (affects less than 1 in 10,000 people). If wheezing or breathing gets worse straight after taking Salamol stop using it immediately, and tell your doctor as soon as possible.
Alternative salbutamol inhalers
Most people who use asthma inhalers are prescribed standard metered aerosol inhalers such as Ventolin Evohaler. For most people this type of inhaler is convenient and less costly.
Salbutamol is also available in other breath-actuated aerosol inhalers with other brand names, and as Ventolin Accuhaler which contains a dry powder and has a lower carbon footprint. A reliever inhaler can usually be used up to 4 times a day.
Why shouldn't I use my Salamol Easi-Breathe inhaler more than 4 times a day?
If you are needing to use your inhaler more than 4 times a day it is a sign that your asthma is not being well controlled and you may need additional treatment so you need to speak to or see a doctor. Using the inhaler more often also increases your risk of experiencing side effects.
If I only use 1 puff for relief of my symptoms can I use it 8 times a day?
No. If you are using it more than 4 times, whether 1 or 2 puffs, this is a sign your asthma is deteriorating and medical help should be sought.
How do I know my inhaler has been used up?
There is no reliable way of telling if your inhaler is empty. The device contains 200 sprays so keeping a count of how often you are using it can help. If it does not seem to be relieving your symptoms and you have had your inhaler for some time then it may be a sign that it has finished.
