QA62: Anything else I should know about spacers?
If you are using a daily controller medication with a spacer, you should rinse your mouth out after each use to make sure there is no residue of the medication left in your mouth. If you do not currently have a spacer, inform your provider. We have them in our office or can write a prescription to have one dispensed from a pharmacy. Most insurance plans cover one spacer each year.
If you have further questions about spacers or want to be sure your child is using it correctly, please call the office. We are happy to help you because we know it can make a big difference in your child’s asthma. – Dr. Ward
