Olodaterol Hydrochloride Information
(oh'' loe da' ter ol)In a large clinical study, more people who used an asthma medication similar to olodaterol experienced more severe episodes of asthma that needed to be treated in a hospital or caused death than patients who did not use the medication. Use of olodaterol inhalation may increase the risk of serious asthma problems or death in people who have asthma. Olodaterol inhalation has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat asthma. There is not enough information to tell whether olodaterol inhalation increases the risk of death in people who have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD; a group of lung diseases, which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema). Your doctor or pharmacist will give you the manufacturer's patient information sheet (Medication Guide) when you begin treatment with olodaterol inhalation and each time you refill your prescription. Read the information carefully and ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions. You can also visit the manufacturer's website to obtain the Medication Guide. Talk to your doctor about the risks of using olodaterol oral inhalation.
- Before you use a new inhaler for the first time, press the safety catch while pulling off the clear base with the yellow cap closed. Be careful not to touch the piercing element inside the bottom of the clear base. Fill in the expiration date on the inhaler label, which is 3 months from the date you inserted the cartridge into the inhaler.
- Remove the cartridge from the box. Push the narrow end of the cartridge into the inhaler. The base of the cartridge will not be all the way in the inhaler. Push the cartridge against a firm surface to ensure that it is correctly inserted. Do not remove the cartridge once it has been inserted into the inhaler.
- Put the clear base back into place. Do not remove the clear base again. Do not take apart your inhaler after you have inserted the cartridge and put the clear base back.
- If you are using the inhaler for the first time or if you have not used the inhaler in more than 21 days, you will need to prime it. Hold the inhaler upright with the yellow cap closed. Turn the clear base in the direction of the black arrows on the label until it clicks (half a turn). Flip the yellow cap until it snaps fully open.
- To prime the inhaler, point the inhaler toward the ground (away from your face) and press the dose release button three times to release three sprays into the air. If you have not used your inhaler for 3 to 20 days, point the inhaler toward the ground and press down on the canister one time to release one spray into the air.
- When you are ready to inhale your dose, hold the inhaler upright, with the yellow cap closed to avoid accidental release of the dose. Turn the clear base in the direction of the black arrows on the label until it clicks (half a turn). Flip the yellow cap until it snaps fully open.
- Point the inhaler toward the ground (away from your face), and press the dose release button until a spray is visible.
- Breathe out slowly and fully, and then close your lips around the end of the mouthpiece without covering the air vents. Point your inhaler to the back of your throat.
- While taking in a slow, deep breath through your mouth, press the dose release button and continue to breathe in slowly for as long as you can.
- Try to hold your breath for 10 seconds.
- Repeat steps 8 to 10 for your second inhalation.
- Close the yellow inhaler cap.
