For patients using inhalers to help with their breathing it is important that they are used properly to ensure the maximum benefit is obtained. There are now a huge variety of different inhalers on the market all of which work in a slightly different way which can be confusing for patients.
If you are unsure how to use your inhaler you can speak to your GP, practice nurse or community pharmacist who will be able to go through the process with you. We also have a number of videos covering all current inhaler types which may help support the advice you have already been given or just act as a reminder on the best way to use.
Leaflets are also available to download if you prefer written advice.
