Frequently Asked Questions, Part 1
Each DOSER comes with detailed instructions about using and understanding the DOSER. Most
questions about the DOSER can be answered by referring to the instructions. Below are examples of questions which
may be asked by DOSER users.

- The DOSER is and electronic digital counter which attaches to your metered dose inhaler
and keeps track of how often the inhaler is used. It tracks both the total number of inhalations, and the number
of inhalations taken each day.

of inhalations in the new canister.
How do I know how much is in the canister to begin with?

metered doses are taken. The FDA has approved the inhaler only for the number of metered doses stated on the side
of the canister. Once you have taken that number of inhalations, you should discard the old canister and get a
