  • Your caregiver will show you how to use your inhaler and the spacer (if needed). This medicine comes with patient instructions.
  • Read and follow these instructions carefully.
  • Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions. Never share your medicine with anyone.

  • You should not use this medicine if you are allergic to soya lecithin, soybeans, or peanuts.

Missed Dose
  • If you miss a dose or forget to use your medicine, use it as soon as you can.
