What is Salamol?
Salamol Easi-Breathe is a breathe-actuated inhaler.
It is part of a group of medicines known as short-acting beta 2 agonists, which stimulate the beta 2 receptors inside the lungs. The Salamol inhaler works by relaxing the muscles in the airways, which causes the airways to expand, relieving the symptoms of asthma and making it easier to breathe.

What is Salamol used for?
The Salamol CFC-free inhaler is widely prescribed as an effective treatment for asthma.
The inhaler contains the active ingredient salbutamol, which is effective in providing short-term relief from asthma symptoms. The Ventolin Inhaler is another type of reliever inhaler that contains the active ingredient salbutamol.
This active ingredient is also able to prevent the symptoms of asthma from occurring after you have exercised. Salamol Easi-Breathe inhalers act incredibly fast and asthma sufferers will feel the effects long after taking it, making it one of the most effective treatments for asthma available.
This inhaler begins to work straight away, often making it a more popular and effective choice compared to standard inhalers, which require you to time your inhalation.

- Mild trembling or shaking
- Muscle cramps
- Feeling tense
This list is not exhaustive. For the full list of side effects, please see our Side Effects tab. You should always thoroughly read the information leaflet which will accompany your Salamol inhaler before you start using it.
You should always read the patient information leaflet before taking any medicines which are used to treat asthma.
If you take your inhaler and are still struggling to breathe, you should call an ambulance immediately.
Always follow your doctor's exact instructions when you use the Salamol inhaler.
Whether you are at home or going out, it is imperative that you have the inhaler with you at all times as you never know when you may require it. Salamol inhalers should always be within easy reach in all circumstances because asthma attacks are unpredictable and rarely occur with prior warning.
Salamol Inhaler 100 mcg Dosage
In order to overcome severe asthma attacks caused during heavy exercise or in the state of hypertension, the patient is advised to take a puff of a 100 mcg Salamol inhaler immediately.
However, another puff of the same potency can be taken if the symptoms do not improve. To prevent breathing problems or severe asthmatic attacks, patients are advised to take a puff of a 200 mcg Salamol inhaler.
To use the inhaler, you should place your lips around the mouthpiece and inhale; the dose will be released automatically. You should take one or two puffs from the inhaler in the event of an asthma attack, but you should not take more than four doses in a 24 hour period.
If you are finding that you are needing to use the Salamol inhaler more than three times in the same week, you should speak to your doctor or asthma nurse as this is a sign that your asthma symptoms are not being controlled well enough. Your doctor then may decide to also prescribe you with a brown preventer inhaler that should be taken on a daily basis to help build up a tolerance to your asthma triggers.
How long does Salamol take to work?
A Salamol inhaler will usually ease the symptoms of asthma within five minutes and you should be able to feel the effects of it for up to six hours at a time.
Because it is a breathe-actuated inhaler, the medicine is released automatically as soon as you take a dose from the inhaler.
