Anyone with experience with spacers, have you found that you get more of the medication using the spacer, or do you get more of the medication when just using the inhaler itself? I've been using a spacer the DR gave me, but don't really feel like I need it. I saw that it said it helps with the medication getting more on your throat and mouth, and if you have any irritation to it, you should use a spacer, but I don't. Should I just use the inhaler by itself?
What's the most bang for my buck? Also, I know how to use and inhaler without the spacer, so it's not like the spacer would be helping me use it properly.
Hi UseInhalers Correctly, I just want to inform you that it is incorrect to only classify aerosols as MDI's as all medicated devices used for asthma are all metered dose inhalers, including turbuhalers such as Seretide and Symbicort and Accuhalers (Diskus) such as Advair. The more correct term for aerosols that are used for spacers is pMDI (pressurised metered dose inhalers). It is a common mistake in much literature to classify pMDI's as the only MDI's when DPI's are also technically metered dose inhalers.
Christian Gutierrez... Your medically trained physician prescribed you a medication and explained to *your individual need* for said device and, in YOUR mind, the next logical step is to ask the opinion of mostly uneducated children on the internet...... Of course!! I totally see your responsible train of thought and series of actions..... Okay, I don't. I'm sorry. Geez, I pray you've learned better by now since this post.
We suggest that you use a spacer which has been prescribed to you by your Doctor. In case you need to explore larger spacer device talk to your Doctor first.
Wishing you best of health.

Holding your breath for 10 seconds allows the time for medicine to be absorbed by your lungs. If you breathe out immediately after inhaling, then the medicine also comes out. You may not get the full dose.
It is recommended that you hold your breath for 10 seconds or as long as you are comfortable.
