Can I use one metered dose inhaler to administer fluticasone and albuterol, one at a time? Or should I get separate inhalers?
Separate: Since each MDI device is customized to the unique product, I don't know any study showing that they can be interchanged.

My Proair albuterol inhaler just reached zero on the dose counter. There is medicine left, can I still use it?
Maybe: It might be that when you reach ZERO on the counter, there is a little bit left, but not a reliable amount per puff.

One can get a refill when the pharmacy opens. ...Read more
