How should I store my Advair Diskus?

Store Advair Diskus at room temperature (68° to 77° F) in a dry place away from direct heat or sunlight. The Diskus inhalation device itself is not reusable and should be thrown out one month after removal from the foil overwrap pouch, or when the dose indicator reads “0,” whichever comes first. Do not attempt to take the device apart.

Ask your pharmacist how to safely dispose of any expired or remaining medication. Keep it out of reach of children.
