Levolin 0.63mg Respules is called “reliever” inhalers because they give you quick relief from breathing problems when you need it. In most cases, you will be given another inhaler to prevent your symptoms (a “preventer”) and you should use this regularly every day. Levolin 0.63mg Respules works quickly and the effects can last several hours. You can take it at any time of day, but only use it when you notice symptoms, such as coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and tightness in the chest or you know that you are going to do an activity that can make you breathless. When an asthma attack happens, you should take the number of puffs your doctor recommends. There are several types of inhaler device so make sure you know how to use your inhaler correctly, otherwise it may not work. Do not stop using this medicine unless your doctor tells you to. If you stop, your breathing problems could get worse.
