Ellipta Inhaler - Dosage and How to Use

How should Ellipta Inhaler be used?

  • ​Each Ellipta consists of a plastic device with blister strips containing a dry powdered medication. It is activated by breath. This means that when you inhale, the Ellipta automatically releases the medication.
​StepsDescription
​1​Hold the inhaler in one hand and slide down the cover with the other hand until you hear a click sound. You will also see that the number on the dose counter will reduce by one.
​2​Breathe out normally away from the Ellipta. Do not breathe into the Ellipta.
​3​Put the mouthpiece in your mouth and seal your lips around the mouthpiece. Do not block the air vent with your fingers or lips.
​4​Breathe in as steadily and deeply as you can until your lungs are full.
​5​Hold your breath for at least 5 seconds or for as long as you can.
​6​Remove the Ellipta from your mouth.
​7​Breathe out slowly and gently with your mouth.
​8​Clean the mouthpiece with a dry tissue before closing the cover.
​9If your Ellipta contains a steroid, please rinse your mouth with water after use to prevent oral fungal infection.
  • Wipe the outside of the mouthpiece regularly (once a week) with a dry tissue. Do not use water or liquids when you clean the mouthpiece.
