    • To load the medication, you need to turn the base of the Turbuhaler all the way in one direction and then all the way back in the other direction.
    • If your child needs more than dose of medicine, twist the base again - first one way, then the other to load the next dose.
    • If your child is taking a preventer medicine, it is best if they clean their teeth or have a drink after using the medicine so that none stays in their mouth.
    • Talk to your doctor, pharmacist or nurse if you have any questions about these instructions.
    • If your child has to have regular medication every day ( such as a preventer) - it can be helpful to keep it with their tootbrush.
