Evohaler: VENTOLIN Evohaler provides short-acting (4 to 6 hours) bronchodilation with fast onset (within 5 minutes) in reversible airway obstruction.
It is particularly suitable for the relief and prevention of asthma symptoms. VENTOLIN Evohaler should be used to relieve symptoms when they occur, and to prevent them in those circumstances, recognised by the patient to precipitate an asthma attack (e.g. before exercise or unavoidable allergen exposure).
VENTOLIN Evohaler is particularly valuable as relief medication in mild, moderate or severe asthma, provided that reliance on it does not delay the introduction and use of regular inhaled corticosteroid therapy.
To relieve asthma – One puff. Two puffs if required.
To prevent asthma – One puff 10-15 minutes before exercise or exposure to a “trigger”. Two puffs if required.
For regular treatment – Two puffs up to 4 times a day.
The maximum dose is 8 puffs in a 24 hour period.
