Difference Between Ventolin and Salamol
There is no difference between Ventolin and Salamol, at least in their chemical makeup. They are exactly the same apart from their names, packaging and inhaler designs.
Pharmacists consider Ventolin and Salamol a ‘branded’ medicine, whereas Salbutamol is the generic ingredient included in both.
An analogy that might be easier to understand would be to look at branded and supermarket biscuits. Take the McVities Digestive as an example, McVities is the branded version of the digestive, while the supermarkets versions are generic.
