Serevent Inhaler Information
Always read and understand the medication guide provided with the product before you begin taking Serevent Inhaler. When you buy Serevent Inhaler online from Your Canada Drug Store, we always send the products in the manufacturer’s packaging.
Meterol works in the lungs to help keep the airways open and make breathing easier. It is classified as maintenance therapy to reduce and prevent wheezing, shortness of breath and bronchospasms caused by asthma or other long term lung disease. Meterol is also used to prevent bronchospasm associated with exercise.
Meterol is inhaled by mouth from the mouthpiece of the canister. Follow the instructions carefully on how to actuate the inhaler for each use. The inhaler should be primed before the first use. Follow the instructions provided by your pharmacist on how to do this correctly.
Meterol is inhaled by mouth twice daily approximately 12 hours apart. Your doctor or pharmacist will inform you of your dose or how many puffs should be inhaled each time. Meterol should be taken regularly for it to work effectively. If using more than one inhaler wait at least 1 minute between using each inhaler.
Meterol does not work immediately and should not be used as a reliever inhaler when having an asthma attack or sudden difficulty breathing. Always carry a short acting inhaled medication for sudden breathing problems.
Tell your doctor which asthma medications and inhaled corticosteroids you take. Your treatment plan may change once you begin treatment. Use this 30 minutes before exercise to help prevent coughing and wheezing.
