Your inhaler technique is so important to ensure you are fighting asthma in the best way possible. Even if you feel confident you are using your inhaler correctly, we still encourage you to speak to your pharmacist to be sure.
According to the Asthma Association of Ireland, a large number of people are not using their inhalers correctly. Two out of three of Ireland’s 470,000 people with asthma may be unknowingly aggravating their condition simply by not using their inhalers correctly.
Having the correct inhaler technique ensures that you breathe the medicine straight into your lungs, where it is needed. We would recommend anyone with asthma to talk to one of our pharmacists. This will ensure you are getting the most out of your inhaler and using it in the best way possible. Even if you are a long-term user of inhalers, it is always good to check-in and have a chat with an expert.
Improve your inhaler technique by calling into our pharmacy and speaking to one of our experts. We can provide you with advice and support to ensure you are getting the most out of your inhaler.
