What is Salamol Easi-Breathe?

Salamol is a type of inhaler used to relieve asthma symptoms like wheezing, chest tightness, breathlessness and coughing. The medicine acts quickly when your asthma is triggered, opening up the airways to allow you to breathe easier. Salamol Easi-Breathe is also CFC-free, which means it is more environmentally friendly than some other types of inhalers. 

What is the Salamol CFC-free inhaler?

CFC (chlorofluorocarbons) is a propellant used inside some inhalers. CFC has been found to damage the ozone layer. For this reason, CFC inhalers are being phased out of production.

Salamol Easi-Breathe is a CFC-free inhaler. It contains a different propellant called HFA which is less harmful to the ozone layer. CFC-free inhalers are just as safe and effective as the previous CFC inhalers. 

Do I need to use my Salamol inhaler regularly?

Salamol should only be used when asthma symptoms flare up, or to treat an asthma attack. You should keep this inhaler with you in case an asthma attack should occur. If you find you are using Salamol more than twice a week then tell your doctor who may prescribe you an additional preventer inhaler to take every day.

If you need to take more than 8 puffs per day, inform a doctor immediately, as this could put you at risk. (Please note, the guidance on this page refers to adults only. Speak to your doctor for advice on childhood asthma). 

How to take Salamol

Always follow your doctor’s advice on how to take Salamol. When you're using it for the first time, or if it's been five days or more since you last used it, twist open the top of the inhaler to reveal the metal canister within, open the mouthpiece and press down on the canister to release a puff into the air twice. This ensures your device is ready to use. 

When you're ready, replace the top, shake the inhaler and breathe out before sealing your lips around the mouthpiece. Breathe in as slowly and deeply as you can. Hold your breath for up to ten seconds, or as long as is comfortable, before exhaling. If you need to take another puff, wait for 30 seconds before repeating.

Various other medications can affect the action of Salamol Easi-Breathe, such as beta-blockers, diuretics (water tablets), antidepressants, metronidazole, disfulfiram and digoxin. Other medications may also interact with Salamol Easi-Breathe. Always inform the prescribing doctor of any medications you are taking, along with any over the counter treatments or herbal remedies.

Treatment Options

Salamol vs. Ventolin inhalers

Salamol and Ventolin both contain the same medicine, salbutamol. Ventolin comes as a metered-dose inhaler that releases medicine as a spray or fine mist. The Salamol Easi-Breathe inhaler is designed to be easier to use as you don't have to press down on the canister at the same time as you breathe in, it is automatically released as you breathe.

Salamol vs. other inhalers

Salamol is a type of reliever inhaler which is used to ease symptoms as they occur and to treat asthma attacks. The Salamol Easi-Breathe inhaler is designed to be easier to use. Some people, especially children, have a hard time using a metered dose inhaler correctly as it requires you to press down on the canister at the same time you breathe in. Salamol activates as you begin to breathe in. 


Will Salamol prevent an asthma attack?

Salamol should only be used when you experience breathlessness, wheezing, coughing or a tight feeling in your chest. If these symptoms are not treated then it could lead to an asthma attack. Salamol cannot be used as a preventative measure, it is a rescue remedy. 

There are other types of inhalers containing steroids that are used daily in order to manage symptoms and prevent attacks. These are prescribed to patients who need to use their reliever inhalers three times a week or more. If you use your reliever haler more than twice a week you should speak to your doctor about how you can better control your asthma.

What does Salamol taste like?

Salamol may leave a slightly sweet aftertaste in the mouth. This will happen particularly if you do not inhale correctly, as the medicine lingers in the back of the throat rather than going straight into the lungs. It can take practice to get the technique right. If you are struggling, ask your doctor, asthma nurse or pharmacist for advice.

Should I keep a Salamol diary?

Keeping an asthma diary is highly recommended. It's an effective way to monitor your condition; tracking where and when your symptoms occur and how often you use your inhaler. This can help to identify what your triggers are, allowing you to manage your asthma and to determine whether or not your Salamol inhaler is providing you with adequate treatment. If you find that you are using it more than twice a week, tell your doctor as you may need an additional preventer inhaler.

Can I smoke if I use Salamol?

It's not recommended to smoke if you have asthma or while you are using Salamol to treat it. Asthma causes the lungs to become inflamed and the airways to tighten. Smoking exacerbates this and is a major trigger for the onset of asthma symptoms or an attack. 

Is long term use of Salamol safe?

Salamol is safe to use long-term. It should only be used when you need it but it's a good idea to keep it with you at all times in case of an asthma attack.
