How should I use Qvar Redihaler?
Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets. Use the medicine exactly as directed.
Qvar Redihaler is not a rescue medicine for asthma attacks. Use only fast-acting inhalation medicine for an attack. Seek medical attention if your breathing problems get worse quickly, or if you think your asthma medications are not working as well.
Read and carefully follow any instructions for using Qvar Redihaler, priming the inhaler device, and cleaning the device. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you do not understand these instructions.
Do not allow a young child to use this medicine without help from an adult.
If you also use an oral steroid medication, you should not stop using it suddenly. Follow your doctor’s instructions about tapering your dose.
To reduce the chance of developing a yeast infection in your mouth, rinse with water (but do not swallow) after using Qvar Redihaler.
You should not stop using Qvar Redihaler suddenly. Stopping suddenly may make your condition worse.
Use all asthma medications as directed. Your dose needs may change due to surgery, illness, stress, or a recent asthma attack. Do not change your dose or stop using a medicine without your doctor’s advice. Tell your doctor if any of your medicines seem to stop working.
Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep the cover on your inhaler when not in use. Keep away from open flame or high heat. The canister may explode if it gets too hot. Do not puncture or burn an empty inhaler canister.
Throw away the inhaler device when the inhalations counter shows “0” or the expiration date on the label has passed. Get your prescription refilled before you run out of medicine completely.
