A: You should take your medicine as long as it is recommended by your doctor for the treatment of bronchospasm. If you happen to meet an asthma attack, you should take the exact number of puffs quickly as recommended by your doctor.

Q: What is COPD?

A: COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) is a common lung problem that produces damage to the lungs over the period. This condition produces symptoms like coughing with mucous for a long time and eventually leads to breathing difficulties.

Q: Can I experience a dry mouth due to Levolin Rotacap?

A: A dry mouth may occur as a side effect. Frequent mouth rinses, good oral hygiene, increased water intake and sugarless candy may help. Gargle with warm water after each inhalation to avoid any fungal infections in your mouth and throat.

A: Learn from your doctor/nurse how to use the rotahaler. Your doctor will inform you how many inhalations (puffs) to use for each dose and the maximum number of inhalations you should use in 24 hours. Strictly follow the prescribed regimen. If you do not get relief from your symptoms after using Levolin Rotacap, you must contact your doctor for advice immediately.
