Ventolin contraindications are insignificant. In general, they include:
- premature delivery management;
- inevitable abortion;
- Ventolin inhaler hypersensitivity;
- pregnancy and breast-feeding.
In pregnancy, Ventolin is prescribed only in cases when expected benefit of therapy to mother outweighs potential risk to fetus.
During post-marketing surveillance, rare cases of various congenital malformations in children were revealed, including “cleft palate” formation and limb malformations, while taking Ventolin (Salbutamol) during pregnancy. In some of these cases, mother takes multiple concomitant medications during pregnancy. In absence of permanent nature of defects and background incidence of congenital anomalies, ranging from 2 to 3%, causal relationship to Canadian Pharmacy Ventolin intake has not been established.
Generic Ventolin is likely to penetrate into breast milk and therefore it is not recommended for nursing mothers unless expected benefit to patient outweighs the most potential risk to child. There is no data proving that if salbutamol is present in breast milk, it produces harmful effect on newborn.
Asthma treatment should be gradual, controlling patient’s clinical response to treatment and lung function. Bronchodilators including Ventolin online should not be the sole or main component of bronchial asthma treatment or asthma of severe unstable disease’s course.
Increasing demand for bronchodilators use with a short-term action, in particular agonists beta 2-adrenergic receptors, for asthma symptoms control, indicates asthma exacerbation.
In such cases, you should review patient’s treatment plan. Sudden and progressive asthma deterioration may pose potential threat to patient’s life, so in such cases it should be considered advisability of appointing or increasing corticosteroids doses. In high-risk patients recommended daily monitoring of peak expiratory flow rate.
Therapy by means of beta 2-adrenoceptor agonists, particularly when administered parenterally or by nebulizer can result in hypokalemia.
It is advised to exercise special care when treating severe asthma attacks, since in these cases, hypokalemia may be enhanced by simultaneous use of:
- xanthine derivatives;
In such situations, My Canadian Pharmacy recommends to monitor potassium level in blood serum.
In absence of previously dose effect of inhaled salbutamol (Ventolin) for at least 3 hours, patient should seek for medical attention for need to take any additional measures. Medical workers should instruct patients on correct use of Ventolin inhaler.
