Answers to Questions on Levalbuterol HFA
Levalbuterol HFA should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. You should have a levalbuterol HFA inhaler available at all times, especially if you have severe asthma attacks. To clean the inhaler, remove the canister from the plastic inhaler and run warm water through the plastic inhaler for 30 seconds. Let the inhaler air dry (do not use cloth or paper towels to dry the inhaler, as this may leave particles that may be inhaled). Never put the canister in water.
Keep levalbuterol HFA and all other medications out of the reach of children.
Some people take levalbuterol HFA just when they need it, while others take in on a regular schedule. If you do not take your levalbuterol HFA as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember, but do not take your doses more closely together than every four hours (unless absolutely necessary to control an attack).
Currently, there is no generic levalbuterol HFA available.
