In brief: Deep Breath

Most dry poder inhalers deliver a specific dose per use.
The best way to use these devices is to put the device in your mouth and activate it the take a long slow deep breath that will cause all the powder to go in slowly and wont irritate your airway causing you to cough.

In brief: Inhaler

You should have your doctor's staff or doctor show you the correct way to use your inhaler to be sure you are getting the medication.
Sometimes pharmacist and their staff may be able to advise. Proper use should be described and demonstrated.
