Ventolin HFA comes in an aerosol pump form. To prevent bronchospasm, the usual dosage for adults and children is 1-2 inhalations every 4-6 hours. Exceeding this frequency or number of administrations is not recommended.
To prevent exercise-induced bronchospasm, a dosage of 2 inhalations is recommended 15 to 30 minutes before exercise.
