Easyhaler - Dosage and How to Use

How should Easyhaler be used?

  • ​Each Easyhaler consists of a plastic device that contains dry powdered medication. It is activated by breath. This means that when you inhale, the Easyhaler automatically releases the medication.
​StepsDescription
​1Hold the Easyhaler in one hand and remove the cover with the other hand.
​2​Shake the Easyhaler up and down 3 to 5 times.
​3​Hold the Easyhaler upright between your thumb and index finger.
​4​Press down once on the coloured button with your index finger until you hear a  ‘click’ sound.
​5​Release your finger. The dose is now ready for use.
​6​Breathe out normally away from the Easyhaler. Do not breathe into the Easyhaler.
​7​Put the mouthpiece in your mouth and seal your lips around the mouthpiece.
​8​Breathe in as steadily and deeply as you can until your lungs are full.
​9​Remove the Easyhaler from your mouth and hold your breath for at least 5 seconds. Then, breathe out slowly away from the mouthpiece with your mouth.
​10​If another dose is required, repeat steps 1 to 9 after 1 minute.
​11​Replace the cover after use.
​12​The last 20 doses will appear in red.
​13​If your Easyhaler contains a steroid, please rinse your mouth with water after use to prevent oral fungal infection.
  • Wipe the outside of the mouthpiece regularly (once a week) with a dry tissue. Do not use water or liquids when you clean the mouthpiece.
