  • Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you
  • Shake the Inhaler vigorously up and down three to five times, to allow proper powder flow and a correct dose
  • After shaking, hold the Inhaler in the upright position
  • Press the Inhaler once between your finger and thumb until you hear a click and let it click back again, to deliver powder into the inhalation channel inside the mouthpiece
  • Keep holding the Inhaler in the upright position
  • In the sitting or standing position breathe out normally (but not into the inhaler)
  • Place the mouthpiece in your mouth between your teeth and seal your lips tightly around it
  • Take a strong and deep breath through the inhaler
  • Remove the Inhaler from your mouth
  • Hold your breath for at least 5 seconds, then breathe normally
  • Rinse your mouth and throat and spit out the water, this reduces the risk of fungal infection
  • Clean the mouthpiece at least once a week with a clean dry cloth or tissue
  • Do not use water or other liquids, the powder is sensitive to moisture
  • If you use the protective cover, you can take the Inhaler out of it to wipe it
  • When putting it back into its protective cover, put the dust cap on the mouthpiece to stop it going off accidentally
