Respimat®: FAQ

What if I can't turn the base easily?
The RESPIMAT® inhaler may already be prepared and in use – the inhaler is ready to be used as it is. The RESPIMAT® inhaler locks automatically once the dose indicator has reached the end of the scale. Please refer to your Prescribing Information for the number of doses. If your inhaler locks, prepare and use a new RESPIMAT® inhaler.
How does the dose indicator work?
The dose indicator shows approximately how many puffs of medicine are left. When the pointer enters the red area of the scale, this is when you will need to refill your prescription, or ask your doctor if you need another prescription for RESPIMAT® Inhalation Spray. Once the dose indicator has reached the end of the scale, all puffs have been used and the RESPIMAT® inhaler locks automatically. At this point, the base cannot be turned any further.
What if I can't press the dose-release button?
The clear base has not been turned. Turn the clear base until it clicks (half a turn). If that doesn't work, check to see if the dose indicator is at 0.
What if the clear base springs back after I have turned it?
The clear base was not turned far enough. Turn the clear base until it clicks (half a turn), so the RESPIMAT® inhaler is ready to use.
What if I can turn the clear base past the point where it clicks?
Either the dose-release button has been pressed, or the clear base has been turned too far. With the cap closed, try again - turn the base until it clicks (half a turn).
Why do I have to prime my inhaler prior to first use?
Your RESPIMAT® inhaler works mechanically, using a capillary. This draws up the solution with medication prior to releasing the spray of air. In order to get the air out of the capillary tube, you need to prime your inhaler. This will ensure you get the full daily dose when using your inhaler. Priming does not affect the number of doses available in your inhaler.
