Corticosteroid, the active ingredient of the medication, helps to keep the airways open. It allows for more air to enter and exit the lungs and makes it easier to breathe. It also helps to reduce swelling, inflammation, and irritation.
Before you start taking this medication, your doctor or pharmacist will show you how to use the inhaler properly. The Kelhale inhaler is made of a canister and a case. It has a mouthpiece and a dose indicator.
Stand or sit straight up to administer the dose. Take off the mouthpiece cover, and exhale as far as you feel comfortable. Place the inhaler between your teeth, without biting down. Close your lips around it. To release the medicine, you will need to inhale deeply and slowly. After holding your breath for a few seconds, take the inhaler out of your mouth and slowly exhale. If your doctor has instructed you to wait, take another puff and then replace the cover.
After using the medication, wash your mouth and brush your teeth. The residual medication can cause a strange taste or even thrush.
Your doctor will recommend the correct dose based on your asthma severity. You should only use the 50-microgram inhaler for mild asthma. Take one to two puffs twice daily. Moderate asthma should be treated with two to four puffs twice daily of the 50 microgram or 100 microgram inhalers. You can take four to eight puffs twice daily with the 50 micrograms or four to six puffs twice daily with the 100 microgram inhaler. Your doctor will recommend the right strength and dose of an inhaler based on your symptoms. You should not change the dose unless you are specifically instructed to.
The dose indicator counts down each time you use your inhaler. If the numbers drop, it is time to visit your doctor for a replacement.
You should not forget to take your Kelhale. Skip the missed dose and go straight on to the next one. Do not double your dose to make up the one you missed.
You should not take Kelhale more than recommended. Overdose can cause your heart to beat faster, shake more, and even have headaches.
