When is the HandiHaler® empty?
When you have run out of capsules, you will have no more medicine. The HandiHaler® should be replaced yearly.
How to clean the HandiHaler®
At least once a month, you should wash the HandiHaler® by:
- Open the dust cap.
- Open the mouthpiece.
- Open the bottom part by pressing the green lever in and up.
- Rinse under warm water to remove dry powder.
- Shake out excess water.
- Leave to air dry for 24 hours with the HandiHaler® open.
Dry the outside with a clean cloth, if needed.
Remember that as the HandiHaler® takes 24 hours to dry, you should wash it immediately after a dose to ensure that it is completely dry before the next dose.
