Ammonia inhalants, commonly known as smelling salts, are respiratory stimulants that kick-start the body after an incident of fatigue or dizziness that can cause fainting. An ammonia inhalant can also help to prevent or clear up dizziness, lightheadedness, and fainting.
Safe for use in adults and children, ammonia inhalants are convenient, portable, and should be part of any first-aid kit, whether it be a pre-packaged store bought kit or one made at home. Keeping some on hand in a car, at the office, or in a purse or wallet can be beneficial as well.
Ammonia inhalants are available without a prescription and can be found at most drugstores or medical supply companies. While they do have some possible complications including burning of the lungs, they are considered a reliable, safe first-aid product.
