Maxair should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. You should have an inhaler available at all times, especially if you have severe asthma attacks. Your inhaler should be cleaned regularly; refer to the information that came with it for detailed instructions about how to clear the inhaler.
Keep Maxair and all other medications out of the reach of children.
If you do not take your Maxair as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. Make sure, however, not to take your doses more closely together than every four hours (unless absolutely necessary to control an attack).
