Salmol vs Ventolin

Hi there. I went to a different chemists as usual to pick up my meds and they've given me salmol instead of ventolin. They said it's because my prescription is for generic and they always do what's cheapest - it's just been luck that I've had ventolin so far.

I don't mind if they are just the same, but I was wondering if people had experience of the two - are the effects the same/experience of taking them? I'm worried I'll have an attack and it won't work.

I prefer ventolin but that's purely on taste!

I find there is no difference in the way they work, as the drug and dosage is exactly the same.
