About

Salbutamol is the active ingredient in Ventorlin, a drug used to treat bronchospasms associated with pulmonary diseases such as asthma. It works by preventing wheezing caused by bronchospasms. It also provides relief for shortness of breath, cough, and colds.

Ventorlin 8 mg tablets are manufactured by GlaxoSmithKlein Australia. Ventorlin is also available as metered dose inhalers, rotahalers, autohalers, nebulizers. The medication is sold in various package sizes on our website.

Detail

Ventorlin acts on B-2 receptors in the lungs causing the muscles in the airway to relax, allowing the air passage to open permitting easier breathing.   A prescription medication, Ventorlin is only available with a doctor's prescription.
