How to Use Soltel Inhaler
|Always use your inhaler while standing or sitting up.|
|Take the mouthpiece cover off. Is the mouthpiece clean and free of loose objects?|
|Shake the inhaler to ensure any loose objects are removed and to ensure the medicine is evenly mixed.|
|Put your thumb below the mouthpiece, on the base of the inhaler and breathe out as far as comfortable.|
|Put the mouthpiece between your teeth, without biting. Close your lips tightly to form a seal.|
|Take a breath, slowly and deeply, through your mouth. Just after you start to breathe in, press down firmly on the top of the canister. This will release a puff of medicine. Continue to breathe in steadily and deeply.|
|Hold your breath. While you do, remove the inhaler from your mouth. Keep holding your breath for a few seconds.|
|Wait 30 seconds before taking another puff of medicine. Just follow steps 3-7 again.|
|When finished, replace the mouthpiece cover.|
|Rinse your mouth with water to help avoid getting thrush or becoming hoarse.|
