The Twisthaler puts a dry powder
medicine into your lungs. To get the most medicine possible, sit
up straight or stand. To load a dose of medicine into the
Twisthaler, hold it straight up with the pink or gray base at
the bottom. Twist the white cap counter-clockwise and remove it.
This puts one dose of the medicine into the Twisthaler,
and the counter will go down by one. Turn your head and breathe
out. If you accidentally blow into the Twisthaler after
loading the dose, load a new dose. Hold the Twisthaler flat.
Place the mouthpiece in your mouth and seal your lips around
the Twisthaler. Breathe in fast and deep through your mouth
until you feel like your lungs are full. Remove the Twisthaler
from your mouth and hold your breath for 10 seconds. Then
breathe out normally. Put the cap back on and twist clockwise
until you hear a click. It is now ready for the next use. If
more than one dose is ordered, repeat these steps. The
Twisthaler contains a steroid medicine, so brush your teeth
and rinse your mouth after each treatment. Be careful not to get
the Twisthaler wet. The Twisthaler has a dose counter.
Throw the Twisthaler away when it reaches zero or 45 days after
you opened it. Get a new Twisthaler of medicine from the
pharmacy. Don’t lose the white cap of the Twisthaler or you
won’t be able to use it.
