Next week, the QVAR inhaler is being replaced by the new QVAR Redihaler™. It works differently than the existing/old inhaler.
Differences for the new QVAR Redihaler™:
- No more shaking or priming the inhaler
- Doesn't need a spacer
- The puff is triggered by you inhaling
- It contains lactose (concern for people with milk allergy) From the latest update from Teva, they are saying that it does NOT contain lactose. As always, check with your doctor, healthcare provider or pharmacist.
Be sure to discuss with your doctor, health care provider or pharmacist about any questions or concerns you have.
