Care of a Turbuhaler ®

  •  Clean mouthpiece using a dry tissue or cloth, gently wiping away any particles  which have collected inside the mouthpiece. Never wash the Turbuhaler®.
  •  When a red mark appears in the window underneath the mouthpiece, the  Turbuhaler® has approximately 20 doses left. When the red mark reaches the  bottom edge of the window the Turbuhaler® is empty.
