How should I use Pulmozyme?
Use Pulmozyme exactly as directed by your doctor. If you do not understand these directions, ask your pharmacist, nurse, or doctor to explain them to you.
Pulmozyme is administered by inhalation using a recommended nebulizer. Your doctor or other healthcare provider will give you detailed instructions on the use and maintenance of the nebulizer.
Do not dilute or mix the Pulmozyme solution with any other drugs in the nebulizer. Mixing of Pulmozyme with other drugs could lead to changes in the actions of the medications.
If you are also taking other respiratory medications, use them in the order directed by your doctor (e.g., a bronchodilator, followed by chest physiotherapy, then Pulmozyme, etc.) Do not dilute or mix Pulmozyme with other agents in the nebulizer at the same time.
Ampules of Pulmozyme do not contain a preservative. It is intended for one-time use only. Once opened, the entire contents of the ampule must be used or discarded.
Do not use any Pulmozyme solution that is cloudy or discolored. Throw away any unused Pulmozyme on the expiration date stamped on the ampule.
Pulmozyme should be used on a regular basis to get the most benefit.
Pulmozyme must be stored in the refrigerator between 36 and 46 degrees Fahrenheit (2 and 8 degrees Celsius) and protected from strong light. Keep unused ampules in the protective foil pouch. Pulmozyme should be kept refrigerated during transport. Combined lengths of exposure of the medication to room temperature should not exceed 24 hours.
