    • If your child needs more than one dose of medicine - push the lever down to load a second 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 - it can be helpful to keep it with their tootbrush.
