Dosage of albuterol
The dosage of albuterol depends on the specific condition being treated and individual patient factors. It is important to follow the prescribed dosage instructions provided by the healthcare provider.
If you miss a dose, take the missed dose as soon as you remember it. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.
Directions for albuterol use
Albuterol inhalers should be used as directed by the healthcare provider. The inhaler should be shaken well before each use, and the patient should breathe out fully before inhaling the medication. Take the cap off the mouthpiece of the actuator. The mouthpiece should be placed in the mouth and the medication inhaled deeply while pressing down on the canister.
Store the metered dose inhaler at room temperature with the mouthpiece down. Keep this medication in the container it came in, tightly closed, and out of reach of children.
Dispose of the powder inhaler 13 months after you open the foil wrapper, after the expiration date on the package, or after you have used the labeled number of inhalation, whichever comes first.
