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 device is empty.
