What is Ventolin?
Ventolin (albuterol) is a bronchodilator used to open up the lungs’ medium and large airways in people with asthma and/or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It is short-acting and provides quick relief, making it popular as a rescue inhaler for use during an asthma attack and to ease breathing in people with exercise-induced bronchoconstriction. It can be prescribed for children as young as two years old.
Ventolin is administered via inhaler or nebulizer. It’s also available in liquid or pill form. It takes effect within 15-minutes and provides relief for 2 to 6 hours.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Many people don’t realize that asthma can be a serious, even deadly, disease. More than 4,000 Americans die from asthma every year. Plus, asthma accounts for one-quarter of all emergency room visits in the United States, or about 2 million per year. For children, asthma is the third-ranking cause of hospitalization. There can be no doubt that having an uninterrupted supply of Ventolin is crucial for those who rely on it to treat their asthma.
We at Simplefill find it distressing that so many people who rely on a steady supply of costly medication must sacrifice other necessities to pay for it. However, not everyone who needs help paying for essential medications is aware of the existence of prescription assistance programs. Our mission at Simplefill is to connect people who need prescription assistance with the programs offering it.
How Does Ventolin Work?
Through a rather complicated series of chemical interactions, Ventolin relaxes the muscles surrounding the airways and the smooth muscles of the airways. When this occurs, the airways open up to allow air to move through them more easily. This makes Ventolin an effective treatment for bronchospasm due to any cause: allergic or exercise-induced asthma, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and so on.
