Overview of Ventolin HFA – The Brand-name Form of Albuterol

By Adem Lewis / in , , , , , , /

Ventolin HFA, the brand-name form of albuterol,
is a prescription medication used to treat bronchospasm in people who have reversible
obstructive airway disease. It is also used to prevent exercise-induced bronchospasm.
Ventolin HFA belongs to a group of drugs called beta agonists or bronchodilators, which work
by relaxing the smooth muscle of the airways. This medication comes in an inhaler to be
breathed slowly into the lungs. Common side effects of Ventolin include fast heartbeat,
shakiness, headache, and nervousness. This medication is only to be used if prescribed
by your health care provider. For RxWiki, I’m Lindsay Morrison.

  1. Can somebody tell me where they get the stuff to make Ventolin I know how to use the inhaler I know what it does to you I know the effects of it it would be a big help to me

  2. I find this drug is slightly addictive and can worsen your condition over time, also can cause depression, I avoid using it for those two reasons
