Using the right inhaler technique, whether it’s your preventer or your reliever inhaler, helps you breathe the medicine straight into your lungs. You’re less likely to get side effects when you are using the correct inhaler technique. This is because not much of the medicine is absorbed into the rest of your body, and you’re giving yourself the best chance of managing your symptoms. We can help teach you the correct inhaler technique in Edinburgh.
