I take sertraline daily but today I feel tight chested. I haven’t had to use ventolin for ages but feel I should have a few puffs. Anyone know if it’s safe to take together please

I bloody hope so....I've been taking them both for 8 years!

sertraline is a preventer (taken every day) and ventolin is a reliever - use the ventolin when you feel you need to. Also get an appointment with you asthma nurse t ensure your technique is still correct and to increase your asthma education

@reindeersandchristmastrees - sertraline is an antidepressant and nothing to do with asthma! hmm

Your doctor will know your medications and will only prescribe what is safe. Id recommended you pop in to a pharmacist tomorrow and ask advice as you can't trust strangers on the internet
