Sirdupla is an asthma treatment that prevents attacks of breathlessness and reduces flare-ups.
The medication's active ingredient help keeping the airways open in the lungs, which makes it easier for air to flow in and out. It allows for normal breathing. Corticosteroids are also included in the medication to reduce inflammation and swelling.
Asthma and breathing difficulties can make life difficult and even impossible. In addition, experiencing anxiety or panic attacks can cause severe pain and worry.
Sirdupla can help with these conditions. The active ingredients last at least 12 hours.
This medication is a preventive measure, not a quick fix. In the case of an attack of wheeziness or breathlessness, it will not work, carry a quick-acting "rescue inhaler" for such cases.
Before you start taking this medication, your doctor or pharmacist will show you how to use the inhaler properly. Sirdupla is an inhaler that consists of a silica capsule inside a plastic container with a mouthpiece. There is also a dose indicator at the front to show you how many puffs are left.
Stand or sit straight up to administer the dose. Take off the mouthpiece cover and shake it well. Then, exhale as far as you feel comfortable. Place the inhaler between your teeth, without biting it. Close your lips around the inhaler. 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. You should wait for a few seconds before you take another puff. After that, replace the cover of the mouthpiece.
After using the medication, wash your mouth and brush your teeth. The residual medication can cause a strange taste or even thrush.
Two inhalations per day are recommended. They should be spaced out (12 hours apart, as that is the time the medication lasts). This inhaler is only recommended for adults. Your doctor will determine the strength of your inhaler according to your symptoms. You should not change this dose unless you are specifically instructed.
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 Sirdupla Inhaler. However, skip the missed dose and go straight to the next one. Do not double your dose to make up the one you missed.
You should not take Sirdupla more than you should. Contact your doctor or pharmacist immediately. Overdose can cause your heart to beat faster, shake more, and even have headaches.

Inflammation of sinuses
Decrease in potassium in the blood
If any of these or other side effects persist or worsen, such as worsening of breathing ability, fainting or skin reactions, then consult your doctor immediately.
