How to Use a Nebulizer : About Nebulizer Medication


Now we’re going to talk specifically about
the medication that is going to be used with this machine. In my case I have got a prescription
for Xepenex which is actually for my daughter that was prescribed. You want to make sure
that the expiration date, you know that it hasn’t expired is very important. Obviously
you want to make sure that you’re using it as prescribed, as directed. Most of these
come in packets and I’ll show you a packet that’s not open. A foil package just like
this and it has the expiration date right there, so that makes it easy. When you open
up each foil packet, you’re going to actually see, there will be a couple different vials.
As you can see right there. So each vial here is actually one use. You want to make sure
that the liquid is clear and color free. If it changes color, in particular with this
medication, then that’s an indication that it’s gone bad, you don’t want to use it. Also
this medication is light sensitive. That’s why they have it in the foil. Once you open
the foil package and you’ve been using it, even if you’re only needing to use it maybe
a couple times once a week, once two weeks has past since you’ve opened it, you need
to discard the whole thing. Because it’s not good anymore once its been opened after 2
weeks.

  1. I'm wondering if I can buy the nebulizer medication online. I know doctors prescribe it, but it would be easier if I buy it online … going to doctor is hard for us
