Your doctor will advise you on how frequently you should use your inhaler. It is critical that you take the smallest dose required to adequately control your asthma. This medicine’s effect may be visible after a few days, but it will not be at its peak for several weeks. This medication must be taken on a regular basis in order to be successful, therefore continue taking it even if you are not experiencing any symptoms. That indicates that it is performing its job.Your asthma and COPD may worsen if you stop taking it. It should not be used to treat unexpected asthma attacks. If you have an asthma attack, use your quick-relief inhaler (reliever). To get the most out of this medication, make sure your inhaler technique is correct; otherwise, it will not perform as effectively.
Nausea, vomiting, respiratory tract infection, fungal infections in the mouth, headache, hoarseness of voice, sore throat, cough, musculoskeletal (bone, muscle, or joint) pain, and elevated heart rate are the most prevalent side effects. If you reach this point, don’t stop taking it, but please consult your doctor. Some of these symptoms can be avoided by washing your mouth and throat with water or brushing your teeth after using your inhaler. Other, less common, but potentially significant adverse effects exist. If you are concerned about them, consult your doctor. In general, you should aim to avoid situations that aggravate your asthma (your triggers) and avoid smoking.
Before using, read the label carefully. Shake the inhaler well. While breathing in through your mouth, press the inhaler once to release the drug and hold your breath for 10 seconds. Repeat until you have breathed the recommended amount of puffs. After that, thoroughly rinse your mouth with water and spit it out.
