Put the mouthpiece into your mouth
 between your teeth.

 

00:00:34;10 - 00:00:36;15

Close your lips tightly around
 the mouthpiece.

 

00:00:37;01 - 00:00:38;16

Tilt your head back slightly. 

 

00:00:38;24 - 00:00:40;24

 your mouth.

 

00:00:41;07 - 00:00:44;04

Remove the inhaler from your mouth
 and hold your breath for

 

00:00:44;06 - 00:00:45;12

up to 10 seconds. 

 

00:00:51;25 - 00:00:54;05

Breathe out slowly away from

Close the cap after each dose. 

 

00:00:58;09 - 00:01:00;18

Rinse your mouth with water
 and spit it out.

Store in a cool, dry place. 

 

00:01:04;09 - 00:01:06;24
