Here is a quick video demonstration on how to use a Ventolin inhaler correctly.
Refer to this video if you use the Flovent HFA/Fluticasone or Flovent Pro/Fluticasone inhalers.
If you’re using an inhaled steroid like Pulmicort, Symbicort, Advair, or Qvar (etc.) make sure to swish water around your mouth and spit it out afterwards. Do not drink the water you use to rinse your mouth.
If you have a capsule/powder inhaler, make sure to ask your pharmacist how to use properly and look to see if we have a video showing you how to use it here on our website! If there is no video call and let our front desk know so that we can add it for you!
If you are still concerned that you are not using your inhaler correctly, ask your doctor about getting a spacer — especially kids!
