How should I take Combivent?

Combivent is taken by inhalation, either using an inhaler or a nebulizer. The medication is a combination of two drugs in a solution that is administered as a vapor you inhale. Usually, you'll take four puffs of the medication per day. It is important not to take more doses than prescribed, and to take no more than 12 puffs over a 24-hour period. Each Combivent canister is meant to provide a set number of puffs, usually 200. Keep track of how many puffs you've inhaled; once you reach the set number, through the canister away, even if it feels like there's still medication inside.
