USES: This medication widens breathing passages of the lung to make breathing easier. It is used to treat asthma, emphysema, bronchitis and other lung diseases.

HOW TO USE: The medication is an oral inhaler. For best results, make sure your doctor or pharmacist demonstrate the proper way to use the inhaler. To use the inhaler, tilt the head back and keep the inhaler mouthpiece two finger lengths from the open mouth. Begin to breathe in slowly then press down on the canister to release the medication. Continue to inhale taking in the medication. Hold your breath for at least ten seconds, then exhale. During the second half of breath intake the airways are more open which helps the drug reach deeper into the lungs. If more than one inhalation per dose is needed, wait at least one full minute between inhalations. Use this inhaler as directed. Do not use it more often, increase your dose or stop using this without first consulting your doctor. Excessive use may cause side effects or reduce its effectiveness.
