Ventolin Ireland (generic name: Albuterol Inhalation) refers to a bronchodilator and its main activity is to relax the muscles of the airways and increase the flow of air to the lungs. Ventolin Ireland is used to prevent or treat bronchospasm in people with reversible obstructive airways disease. Benzoline can also be used to prevent exercise-induced bronchospasm.
It is very important to keep Ventolin at your fingertips at all times. Fill out your prescription before the medicine is completely finished. You can continue to take all other medicines as prescribed by your doctor.
If you are allergic to albuterol, you should refrain from using Ventolin Ireland. To help you take Ventolin safely, tell your doctor if you have any of the conditions listed below:
- cardiac arrhythmias;
- heart disease, congestive heart failure, high blood pressure;
- seizure disorders (such as epilepsy)
Ventolin Ireland has an FDA pregnancy category C. However, it is not clear whether Ventolin can harm an unborn baby. Therefore, it is very important to tell your doctor if you are already pregnant or planning to become pregnant during treatment with bentolin. It is not known whether albuterol can be excreted in human milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. Similarly, you should avoid breast-feeding while taking albuterol. Keep your Ventolin HFA inhaler out of the reach and sight of children under 4 years of age.
