- An extra patient leaflet is available with this medicine. Talk to your pharmacist if you have questions about this information.
- Inhale this medicine through the mouth.
- You will need to prime a new inhaler before you use it for the first time. Twist the inhaler cover and lift it off. Hold the unit upright (mouthpiece on top) and turn the grip fully in one direction, then fully in the other direction until it clicks. It does not matter which way you turn it first. Repeat. Do not reprime the inhaler. You will only need to prime the inhaler once, even if you do not use it for a long period of time. The inhaler is now ready for use.
- To use a dose, twist the inhaler cover and lift it off. Hold the unit upright (mouthpiece on top) and turn the grip fully in one direction, then fully in the other direction until it clicks. It does not matter which way you turn it first. Do NOT shake the inhaler. Turn your head away from the inhaler and breathe out fully. Place the mouthpiece between your lips and inhale forcefully and deeply. You may not feel the medicine. Remove the inhaler from your mouth and breathe out. Do NOT breathe out through the inhaler. Do not bite or chew the mouthpiece.
- If more than 1 inhalation is needed to complete your dose, repeat the previous steps.
- Replace the mouthpiece cover after each use.
- Rinse your mouth with water after each use to help prevent mouth or throat infections. Do not swallow the rinse water. Spit it out.
- Do not use this medicine with a spacer.
- Keep the inhaler clean and dry at all times.
- This medicine has a dose counter located just below the mouthpiece to help you to keep track of how many doses are left in your inhaler. The dose counter will count down every time a dose is loaded; however, it is unlikely that you will see the dose counter move with each dose. You will be able to see that it is moving after intervals of about 5 doses. Do not use this inhaler after the number "0" on the red background has reached the middle of the dose counter window. It may no longer give the correct amount of medicine with each dose.
- Continue to use this medicine even if you feel well. Do not miss any doses.
- Use this medicine on a regular schedule to get the most benefit from it.
