What is Airomir Inhaler?

The Airomir Inhaler contains the active ingredient salbutamol, which is a bronchodilator. It’s used to treat asthma and to prevent it after exercise. It works by opening up the breathing tubes of the lungs to make breathing easier, in addition to reducing feelings of a tight chest, breathlessness and wheezing. This inhaler contains 200 doses.

 

How to use this product

Always use the Airomir Inhaler exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor / Chemist4U pharmacist has told you. If you’ve used CFC inhalers before, please be aware that this inhaler will have a different taste and feel. If this is a new inhaler or you haven’t used it for two weeks or more, you must test it before use. You can do this by shaking it and releasing four puffs into the air. 

 

To use Airomir Inhaler, first remove the cover from the mouthpiece and vigorously shake. Then, holding the inhaler as shown in the patient information leaflet (pinched between your thumb and index finger, with your mouth wrapped around the mouth piece and your finger holding the canister at the top) start to breathe in slowly and deeply through your mouth. 

 

Press down the canister to release one puff of medicine. It’s important to continue breathing in after releasing the puff. Hold your breath for 10 seconds, then breathe out slowly. After use, replace the cover on the mouthpiece.

 

For adults (including the elderly), to relieve symptoms such as wheezing and shortness of breath, take one or two puffs as needed. For asthma due to exercise, take two puffs before exercising. Do not take more than eight puffs in 24 hours.

 

Children (aged 4 to 11 years), to relieve symptoms such as wheezing and shortness of breath, take one puff. This may be increased to two puffs if necessary. For asthma due to exercise, take one puff before exercising. This may be increased to two puffs if necessary. 

For chronic therapy, up to two puffs can be taken four times daily. 

 

Children (aged 12 years and over) the dose is the same as adults. Children using this inhaler should be supervised by an adult and should use this inhaler only as advised by the doctor. 

 

How to clean your Airomir Inhaler

You should clean your inhaler every week. This is very important as the small hole where the medicine comes out can become blocked and therefore the inhaler is unable to work properly. To clean your inhaler, start by taking the metal canister out of the plastic inhaler unit. The canister should not be put in water. Remove the plastic mouthpiece cover.

 

Rinse both the plastic parts in warm, running water for at least 30 seconds. Let the water run through the mouthpiece then turn the plastic inhaler unit around and let the water run through the unit for another 30 seconds. Shake off the excess water and leave the plastic parts to dry completely (overnight if possible). When the mouthpiece is dry, replace the canister and the mouthpiece cover.

 

How to tell when your Airomir Inhaler is empty

Remove the metal canister from the plastic inhaler unit and shake it. You should be able to hear or feel the sensation of liquid inside the canister. Replace the canister as shown in the patient information leaflet.

 

Is Airomir Inhaler suitable for children? 

Yes, this inhaler is suitable for children aged 4 years and over. If you’re looking for an asthma treatment for a child under the age of 4, you must speak to your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist for advice on alternative treatment options.

 

Is Airomir Inhaler suitable for pregnant and breastfeeding women? 

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby, you must ask your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist for advice before taking any new medicine. 

 

Does salbutamol cause drowsiness? 

Salbutomol can cause dizziness in some people. Do not drive or operate machinery until you know how this medicine affects you.

 

When should this product not be used? 

Airomir Inhaler may be unsuitable for certain people. Do not use this product if you are allergic to any of the ingredients. Airomir Inhaler should not be used to treat premature labour or threatened miscarriage, as inhaled salbutamol products are not suitable for this purpose.
