    Can I get Ventolin on the NHS?

    Can I get Ventolin on the NHS?

    Ventolin inhalers are also referred to as the blue inhalers. These familiar items are synonymous with asthma inhalers and provide great relief to those that struggle with asthma and asthma-based symptoms. People that require Ventolin inhalers may be confused about where they can get their inhalers from, and how they can save some money whilst still receiving the medication that they need. In this article, we will answer the question of whether or not you can get Ventolin inhalers on the NHS, as well as other questions about the medication, and how you can get what you need without spending too much. 

    Who would need Ventolin?

    Ventolin is a very effective treatment for asthma and asthma-based symptoms. It uses a medication called salbutamol. Salbutamol works by relaxing the muscles in the airways to help increase the amount of airflow to the lungs, relieving the symptoms of asthma. Ventolin inhalers are usually prescribed to people that suffer from respiratory conditions including asthma, Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and bronchitis. These conditions affect the airways and the respiratory system. By using salbutamol, people will relieve their symptoms. 

    Do I need a prescription for Ventolin in the UK?

    In the United Kingdom, in order to purchase and use Ventolin legally then you will need to have a valid prescription. Ventolin is a prescription-only medication. To acquire a prescription you can complete a free consultation online with UK Meds. If your consultation is approved then you will be able to purchase the medication that you require. Ventolin is classified as a prescription-only medication to ensure that it is only used by people that actually require it. 

    Is Ventolin available over the counter?

    As a prescription-only medication, Ventolin can only be purchased by those that have a valid prescription. Over-the-counter medications are those that can be purchased as described, over the counter, without the need for a prescription, such as paracetamol and ibuprofen. Ventolin inhalers are not able to be purchased over the counter, and you will need to complete an online consultation with UK Meds in order to purchase from us. If your consultation is successful then you simply select your delivery method, sit back and wait for us to deliver your medication discreetly to your door. 

    Can I get Ventolin at UK Meds?

    Yes, as mentioned you are able to purchase Ventolin inhalers online from UK Meds, provided you have a valid prescription attained via our online consultation. You can purchase different amounts of inhalers, different strengths, and different types of Ventolin inhalers. The two types of inhalers you can purchase are the Accuhaler and the Evohaler. The main difference between these two inhalers is that the Accuhaler uses dry powder and the Evohaler is an aerosol inhaler. The strengths of both Ventolin options are 100 and 200mcg and you can purchase one, two or three inhalers. You can also choose to have your purchase on a subscription basis. By doing this, you can save money whilst also not having to worry about repeating your purchase when you need your inhalers.  You can also purchase other inhalers to treat asthma and COPD, including Fostair and Luforbec.

    What is the best Ventolin inhaler price? 

    Naturally, you want to be getting the best price for your medication. Here is a handy table that compares the price of Ventolin inhalers from UK Meds and from the NHS. 

    £6.30 per inhaler (Three inhalers, delivered every three months.)
    UK Meds£7.50 per inhaler (Three inhalers as a one-off purchase
    NHS£9.65 per prescription

    As you can see, you can save lots of money by using a UK Meds subscription. The NHS uses a set fee of £9.65 for a prescription, whereas UK Meds offer a free consultation for a prescription as well as cheaper prices for more inhalers, what’s not to like?

    Are there any benefits to getting a Ventolin inhaler privately?

    As briefly mentioned, there are many benefits to getting your Ventolin inhaler from an online pharmacy. By purchasing your Ventolin from UK Meds you can save yourself not only money, but also time. The hassle of being seen by an NHS doctor these days is often spoken about. By the time you have gotten through on the phone, you never know if you’re even going to be seen, let alone prescribed the medication that you need. By using UK Meds you can sit back and relax whilst you get the exact product you need, all from the comfort of your own home. 

    We also understand that it can be scary when an asthma attack strikes and that you need to have an inhaler to hand to ease your symptoms. This can mean that you may feel more comfortable having a number of inhalers, so you never get caught without one. You may wish to have one in your gym bag, one at work, one in the car and a couple of spares at home. Being able to buy inhalers from UK Meds means that you can ensure you always have enough to hand for when you may need one.

    Is a cheap Ventolin inhaler just as reliable as any other Ventolin inhaler?

    Just because you can purchase a product from an online pharmacy for cheaper than you can from the NHS does not mean it is not as reliable or of a lower quality. All of the medications that you can purchase from UK Meds are the same as the medications you can get from the NHS. All of the medications that we sell are 100% genuine and reliable, including our Ventolin inhalers.
