Can I use my Proventil inhaler before it gets dry from cleaning?

If you cleaned your proventil inhaler and it has not dried before you need to use it, just shake off the excess water. Make sure the canister fits back into the actuator, and then shake the inhaler a few times. Spray it twice into the air before taking a dose. Afterward, clean and let it air dry. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about cleaning your inhaler.
