What is Salamol?

Salamol Easi-Breathe CFC-Free Inhaler contains salbutamol, which is a bronchodilator. It works by opening airways in the lungs, allowing air to easily flow in and out. Salamol is available in inhaler form and must be prescribed by a licensed physician.

Salamol inhaler comes as a pressurised inhalation suspension of the active ingredient salbuterol. Each Salamol dose or puff you take contains 100 mcg of salbutamol.

It is important to always carry your preventer inhaler on your person, in case you have an asthma attack.


How does Salamol work?

Salamol inhalers are known as “relievers”. They work to quickly relieve acute symptoms of an asthma attack or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Salamol inhalers can provide relief from symptoms like:

  • Wheezing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest tightness
  • Coughing

Salamol inhalers can also be used as a preventative measure. If your asthma or pulmonary condition is triggered by allergens or exercise you can use the inhaler before you expose yourself to pollen, pet fur or before participating in any type of physical activity.

"When an asthma attack strikes, the airways become inflamed which makes it difficult to breathe. If left untreated, an attack can be potentially fatal. Salbutamol inhalers can help treat an attack by opening the airways, allowing the patient to breathe easily." Mohamed Imran Lakhi, Superintendant Pharmacist.

When exposed to a trigger, the airways in the lungs become inflamed and narrow, making it extremely difficult for air to get in and out. Salbutamol, the active ingredient in Salamol, is a short-acting beta-2 agonist which works by targeting the beta 2 receptors in the lungs, relaxing and opening the airway muscles to improve the flow of oxygen. This relieves the attack allowing you to breathe easily and effectively.

Typically, Salamol inhalers work within 5 minutes of taking the prescribed dose. Depending on the prescribed dose, relief can last four to six hours.

Inhalers containing Salbutamol are often used in combination with controller medicines which work to prevent asthma attacks from happening.


How to use Salamol?

It is important to use Salamol exactly as prescribed by your doctor. The recommended dosage is based on your doctor’s instructions. However, for the best results, use Salamol when you start to experience symptoms of an asthma attack, or if you are about to be exposed to a trigger.

Salamol is available in two variations from Prescription Doctor; an Easi-Breathe automatic inhaler and a CFC-free inhaler.

Using Salamol Easi-Breathe inhalers

1. To use Salamol Easi-Breathe effectively, sit or stand up straight and ensure the inhaler is oriented correctly.

2. Shake the inhaler well before each puff to ensure the medicines is mixed well.

3. Breathe out, ensuring your lungs are empty before using the inhaler for best results.

4. Breathe in deeply through the mouthpiece until your lungs are full. The Easi-Breathe will automatically administer the dose as you breathe in through the inhaler. Continue breathing in after the inhaler has administered the dose.

5. Hold your breath for 10 seconds before exhaling to ensure the medicine is absorbed. Repeat these steps for each required dose.

Using Salamol CFC-Free inhalers

1. To use a Salamol CFC-Free inhaler, sit or stand up straight and ensure that the inhaler is oriented correctly, with the silver canister pointing upwards.

2. Shake the inhaler well before each dose.

3. While holding the inhaler away from you, breathe out to ensure your lungs are empty before using your inhaler.

4. Place the mouthpiece of the inhaler between your teeth but don't bite. Close your lips around the mouthpiece to ensure an airtight seal.

5. Depress the canister and breathe in deeply through the mouthpiece. Timing is essential here for the medicine to reach your lungs.

6. Hold your breath for 10 seconds, or as long as you are comfortable before gently breathing out.

You can view video tutorials of correct inhaler techniques using the link below. We recommend comparing your technique and contacting our Doctor or your GP if you spot any differences or have any questions.

Using Salamol with a spacer (Aerochamber or Volumatic)

You can use a spacer with Salamol CFC-Free inhalers. You cannot use Salamol Easi-Breathe inhalers with a spacer.

Spacers make it easier for inhalers to be administered. Rather than needing to time your breathing with administering the dose, you can administer the dosage into the chamber and then inhale through the mouthpiece at your own pace.

According to Asthma UK, spacers make it easier for those having an asthma attack to take their blue reliever inhaler and get the medicine into their lungs.

Some spacers are small and easily portable, such as the Aerochamber. It is also possible to attach a mask to the mouthpiece, making it easier to use.

You should speak to your doctor or asthma nurse on the correct use of spacers with your Salamol inhaler. Your doctor or asthma nurse can tell you if a spacer would be beneficial for you.

1. First, shake your inhaler and remove the cap from the mouthpiece.

2. Push the mouthpiece into the end of the spacer. Ensure a tight seal between the mouthpiece of the inhaler and the spacer you are using.

3. Place the mouthpiece of the spacer between your teeth but don't bite it. Close your mouth around the mouthpiece of the spacer to ensure a tight seal.

4. Sit or stand up straight and raise your chin slightly. This will help the medicine reach your lung.

5. Depress the canister of the inhaler to administer the dose into the spacer.

6. Your doctor will advise you on which technique to use in order to inhale the medicine. If you are unsure about which method to use, ask your doctor or asthma nurse.

6a. If your doctor has suggested using the tidal or multiple breath technique, breathe in and out steadily through the spacer 5 times.

6b. If your doctor has suggested the single breath and hold technique, take one deep single breath in through the spacer until your lungs feel full. Hold your breath for 10 seconds, or as long as feels comfortable.

7. Once you have administered the dose(s), remove the mouthpiece from your mouth.

It is important to clean your spacer regularly.
