Inhalation with the Novolizer
Please remove the cartridge from the package before using the Novolizer for the first time. Then insert the cartridge in the Novolizer with the counter facing towards the mouthpiece. The Novolizer has a counter and a window with changing colours to control the inhalation.
Please sit upright.
Then please remove the cap by pressing lightly on the side and pulling it to the front.
Press the dosage button down until the colour in the control window changes from red to green, thus indicating that the Novolizer is now ready for inhalation.
Please breathe out slowly but not into the inhaler. Then put the mouthpiece into your mouth and enclose your lips tightly around it. Now inhale through your mouth as rapidly, strongly and deeply as possible. A clicking sound will indicate the correct inhalation.
After inhaling, please hold your breath for 5 to 10 seconds. Thereafter you can breathe out slowly, but not into the inhaler. A change in colour from green to red indicates the correct inhalation.
Then put the cap back on the mouthpiece.
If you have to inhale corticosteroids, please rinse your mouth after use and eat something to prevent oral yeast infections.
Please read the package information leaflet carefully. If you are not certain whether you are using your inhaler correctly, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
