Salamol Easi-Breathe is a breath-actuated inhaler. The active ingredient, salbutamol, provides effective short-term relief from the symptoms of asthma. Salbutamol is also effective at preventing asthma symptoms from occurring after exercise. Salamol Easi-Breathe inhalers are fast-acting and long-lasting. After administration, breathing difficulties should ease within five minutes, with the effects lasting for up to six hours. Salamol Easi-Breathe is a breath-actuated inhaler, which means that the medicine is released automatically. This may be preferable to other standard inhalers, which require that you correctly time your inhalation with manual activation of the device.
For those who have been previously diagnosed with asthma by their GP, repeat supplies of Salamol Easi-Breathe can be bought from The Independent Pharmacy's Online Doctor service, following a free online consultation.
Generally, there are two types of medicine contained in inhalers. Firstly, there are 'preventer' inhalers, which typically contain a corticosteroid, such as Beclomethasone. These are designed for regular use and will help to reduce the inflammation in the airways. Secondly, there are 'reliever' inhalers, some of which contain the ingredient salbutamol. These inhalers are used when required, to ease asthma symptoms. Salbutamol inhalers can also be used pre-emptively before you exercise or encounter an allergen.
Salbutamol belongs to a group of medicines called short-acting beta 2 agonists. Beta 2 receptors inside the lungs are stimulated by the beta 2 agonists, which has the effect of relaxing the muscles in the airways. This relaxation causes an expansion in the airways, which helps relieve the symptoms of asthma.
Asthma is believed to affect over five million people in The UK. The condition is caused by an inflammation of the bronchi, which are the tubes that connect the lungs to the windpipe. This inflammation causes the airway passages to contract. Another associated complication is an increased production of phlegm. This excess mucus can create a further obstruction in the airways. The main symptoms of asthma include; coughing, wheezing, tightness in the chest, and a shortness of breath.
Asthma is a very common condition. However, asthma sufferers can experience the symptoms in a variety of ways, or at different levels of severity. Depending on the individual, asthma attacks can be triggered by allergens, infections, exercise, cold air, stress, or airborne chemicals, such as smoke. It isn't fully known why some people have an increased sensitivity to particular irritants over others, though family history is thought to play a role.
Why choose The Independent Pharmacy?
Asthma is not a condition that can be effectively treated with over the counter medications. If you are looking for another treatment or wanting to swap inhalers you will need to broach this subject with your GP at your regular asthma review.
Please do not 'Try' a new inhaler without seeing your GP first.
We recommend you have a regular check up with your regular GP to ensure your inhalers are still keeping your asthma controlled and are still the best course for you.
Salamol Easi-Breathe should be used as necessary to ease asthmatic symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, and difficulty breathing.
Place your lips on the mouthpiece and inhale. This device is breath- actuated, meaning the dose will be released automatically.
Take one or two puffs from your Salamol Easi-Breathe inhaler. Do not exceed four doses each day. If you find you need to use your relief inhaler more than three times per week, this is a sign that your asthma is not well-controlled. If this is the case, talk to your GP or asthma nurse.

Reliever inhalers, such as Salamol Easi-Breathe dilate the airways by relaxing the surrounding muscles. They are used only when required to help relieve the symptoms of asthma. Alternatively, steroid inhalers work by reducing inflammation and are used on a regular basis to prevent asthma symptoms from occurring. Generally, preventer inhalers are brown whereas reliever inhalers are blue.
Everyone with asthma should have a reliever inhaler. If your asthma is mild, it might not be necessary to use a preventer inhaler.
Reliever inhalers are usually blue in colour and all have a similar short-term relief effect. The medicine reaches the lungs and dilates the airways by relaxing the surrounding muscles. They come in three slightly different forms.
