Only about 5-20% of asthmatics use their inhalers correctly, even after many years. Many people spray the asthma medicine into the back of the throat in such a way that it doesn’t effectively reach the airways. This results in poor asthma control.

Achieving the correct inhaler technique may require a fair amount of practice. Ask your pharmacist or doctor to check your technique. If you can’t get the technique right, it might be time to change over to powder devices or to use a spacer device with a metered-dose inhaler. Powder devices are easier to use, but generally more expensive.

Remember: If you’re not using a proper inhaler technique, you’re probably spraying the inhaler into the back of your throat and not into your chest. The inhaler will not be effective in controlling your asthma.
