How should I use Bricanyl Turbuhaler?
The usual recommended adult dose of terbutaline is 1 inhalation when required. This is usually adequate to relieve symptoms. However, if a second dose is needed, it should be taken preferably five minutes after the first dose. You should not need more than 6 inhalations in a 24-hour period. If a previously effective dose fails to provide the usual relief, or if the effects of a dose last less than three hours, contact a doctor immediately, as this is a sign that your asthma condition is getting worse. If you need to use terbutaline every day to relieve symptoms, consult your doctor. Follow the package instructions carefully for proper use of your inhalation device. The amount of medication dispensed from the inhaler is very small, so you may not be able to taste the powder after inhalation. However, you can still be confident that the dose has been inhaled if you have followed the package instructions. Avoid exhaling into the inhalation device and always put the cover back on after use
