Hold the flexhaler upright, twist the cover and lift it off. Twist the brown grip in one direction as far as it will go. Twist the grip fully back again in another direction. You will hear a click. Breathe out completely away from the flexhaler. Place the mouthpiece in your mouth and breathe in quickly and deeply, while holding the flexhaler in a horizontal position. Remove the mouthpiece, hold your breath for 10 seconds or as long as you are comfortable and breathe out slowly through mouth or nose. Repeat steps 2 to 6 after 30 seconds, if you have to take another puff. Replace the cap.

  1. Perplexing I must say, Thanks for this video because in my mind I died trying to figure it out, gasping for air like a fish out of water, Thinking my time is near because I can't solve the puzzle & crack the case!

  2. Wow. thanks for the video, I was while reading the instructions and no idea how it worked. I show it to my child of 5 years and was much easier 👍

  3. I used around it 5 times and now shows 0 puff left.  lol I guess I was wasting puffs trying to figure it out how the heck works.

  4. I couldn't figure out how to use this either. It's also difficult to read because the numbers never change each time I take a metered dose. This is my 2nd one and I'm not impressed with the effectiveness. But I changed to another one and it was even less effective, but my insurance wouldn't allow me to keep using Asthmanex, which has been wonderfully effective for years. It's rather sad because in the end it's cost them more. I've had to use my rescue inhaler more and my Nebulizer, every few days. It makes me wonder why insurance is so adamant to save a few dollars consequently makes a decision that ultimately makes my asthma worse, whereas one product kept me off my rescue inhaler & Nebulizer, now requires that I use all 3 and none work that well. Pulmicort Flexhaler may help some individuals but I've since tried yet another brand that has worsened my asthma, caused more problems and cannot for the life of me understand how they have actually saved themselves or me any money. ….I have checked and inhalers are different with different ingredients which makes for different results. I have A-Fib so I have limited choices.
