Introduction

Salbair-B Transhaler is used in the treatment of asthma (wheezing and shortness of breath). It relaxes the muscles of the air passages and makes it easier to breathe.

Your doctor will tell you how often you need to use your inhaler. It’s important that you take the lowest dose needed to effectively control your asthma. The effect of this medicine may be noticeable after a few days but will only reach its maximum after a few weeks. This medicine must be used regularly to be effective, so go on taking it even if you don't have any symptoms. That means it’s doing its job. If you stop taking it your asthma may get worse. It should not be used to relieve sudden asthma attacks. If an asthma attack occurs, use your quick-relief inhaler (reliever). To get the benefit from this medicine you need to make sure you get your inhaler technique right, otherwise, it does not work as well.

The most common side effects are hoarseness of voice, sore throat, fungal infection of mouth, respiratory tract infection, headache, and muscle cramp. If you get these, don’t stop taking it but do talk to your doctor. You can help prevent some of these symptoms by rinsing your mouth and throat with water or brushing your teeth after using your inhaler. There are other, rarer side effects which can be serious. Talk to your doctor if you're worried about them. In general, you should be trying to avoid situations that make your asthma worse (your triggers) and try not to smoke.

Ask your doctor whether it’s safe to take this medicine if you're pregnant or breastfeeding. Before taking it, you should tell your doctor if you have any kidney or liver diseases so that your doctor can prescribe a suitable dose for you.

Quick tips

  • You have been prescribed Salbair-B Transhaler for the treatment of asthma.
  • This medicine is for inhalation only. The tablet should not be swallowed.
  • Take it at the same time everyday to maintain consistent level of medicine in your body.
  • It does not work right away and should not be used to relieve sudden breathing problems. Use your rescue inhaler to control sudden difficulty in breathing. 
  • Dry mouth may occur as a side effect. Frequent mouth rinses, good oral hygiene, increased water intake and sugarless candy may help.
  • Gargle with warm water after each inhalation to avoid any fungal infections in your mouth and throat.
  • Take the first dose of this medicine under medical supervision as it may cause wheezing or tightening of the airways (bronchospasm) immediately after using.
  • Your doctor may regularly monitor your  blood potassium levels as low oxygen levels in the blood (hypoxia) and medicines such as Salbair-B Transhaler can lower potassium levels in blood.
  • Only very small amounts of Salbair-B Transhaler may get absorbed into the bloodstream after inhalation. Hence, serious side effects are unlikely.
  • Do not stop taking Salbair-B Transhaler suddenly even if you don’t currently have any symptoms as that may cause your breathing problems to come back.
