Inhalers A-Z

Why are inhalers better?

Across the world, inhalers are accepted as the most effective way of treating breathing problems such as asthma

and COPD

, as opposed to tablets and syrups.

With inhalers, the medication reaches the airways in the lungs directly, exactly where it has to act, in a matter of seconds and provides relief. On the other hand, tablets and syrups need to be ingested, which means they reach the stomach and bloodstream first, and the lungs later. Thus, they do not provide quick relief.

Moreover, a large dose is required to produce the same effect as the inhaled medication.

Since inhaler medication reaches the problem area directly, the dose that needs to be taken is significantly lower than that of tablets and syrups.

Unlike what many people believe, inhalers have minimal side effects, because a very low quantity of the medication enters the body. So, you or your child can use inhalers without worrying and continue to do everything you love and enjoy.
