Medically reviewed by Last updated on Dec 11, 2023.

The usual dose for adults and children 12 years and older is two inhalations (400 mcg) repeated every 4–6 hours. One inhalation (200 mcg) repeated every 4–6 hours may be sufficient for some patients.

A total daily dose of 12 inhalations should not be exceeded.

If a previously effective dosage regimen fails to provide the usual relief, medical advice should be sought immediately as this is often a sign of seriously worsening asthma which would require reassessment of therapy.
