Every 4-6 breaths, take a deep slow breath and then hold it for about 5 seconds. This will allow the medicine to reach the deeper parts of the lung. The rest of the time, just breathe normally. If you are using a mouthpiece, be sure to inhale through your mouth and exhale either through the nose or mouth.

Do nebulizers work better than inhaler pumps?
Unfortunately, many patients do not take their inhaler properly. Most of the medication usually ends up in the mouth instead of the lungs.

Nebulizers require much less coordination and the medication is dispensed over a longer period of time which allows for better distribution in the lungs.
