How To Use
  • HOW TO USE THIS MEDICATION: Make sure you understand how to use the inhaler properly.
  • Shake the canister well before using.
  • When using the inhaler for the first time, test the unit by spraying at least once into the air.
  • A fine mist indicates that the inhaler is working properly.
  • It is recommended you use a spacer/holding chamber.
  • Ask your doctor or pharmacist about this.
  • If using without a spacing device, place the canister near your mouth and exhale.
  • Depress the canister as you inhale deeply.
  • Hold your breath for a few seconds to allow the drug to be absorbed.
  • Shake the inhaler again before using.
  • If more than one inhalation is prescribed, wait one full minute between inhalations so you get the full effects of the first dose.
  • If using other inhalers, wait several minutes between the use of the inhalers and use this one (the corticosteroid) last.
  • Gargle and rinse your mouth after using this to help prevent dryness, relieve throat irritation and to prevent oral yeast infections.
  • Do not swallow the rinse solution.
  • Use this medication exactly as prescribed.
  • Do not use it more frequently without your doctor's approval.
