Inhalation with Spiromax
You may not shake the inhaler before using it.
Hold the inhaler with the mouthpiece to the bottom. Open the cap of the mouthpiece completely by folding it down until a loud click is discernible. Your medication is measured by this action. Your Spiromax inhaler is now ready for use.
Please sit upright and ensure that the air vents are not covered during inhalation.
Relax and breathe out deeply with your head tilted slightly to the back. Then put the mouthpiece between your teeth and enclose your lips tightly around it. Now inhale strongly and deeply through your mouth, the medication being released automatically in the process.
Take the inhaler from your mouth at the end of the inhalation and hold your breath for 5 to 10 seconds if possible. Thereafter breathe out slowly, but not into the inhaler.
It is possible that you will notice a taste during the inhalation.
Then put the cap back on the mouthpiece.
Please rinse your mouth or eat something after use to prevent infections in your mouth and throat.
A counter on the back of the inhaler indicates the number of inhalations remaining, commencing with 120 or 60 subject to the medication used. The numbers are displayed in red for 20 or less remaining inhalations. You should consult your doctor to have a new inhaler prescribed when the number in the window is red.
Always keep the mouthpiece closed and only open it when you inhale. If you open and close the mouthpiece without inhaling, the counter registers this as a dose withdrawal. This dose is stored in the inside of the Spiromax until you inhale the next time. This ensures that is not possible to accidentally inhale a double dose or an additional dose.
Keep the inhaler dry and clean. If necessary, you can wipe the mouthpiece of the inhaler with a dry cloth after use.
If your doctor has prescribed two inhalations in succession, please repeat the inhalation procedure.
Please read the package information leaflet carefully before use. If you are not certain whether you are using your inhaler correctly, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
