Special precautions for disposal: Partially used PecFent bottles may contain enough medicine to be harmful or life-threatening to a child. even if there is little or no medicine left in the bottle, PecFent must be disposed of properly, according to the following steps: Patients and caregivers must be instructed to properly dispose of all unused, partially used and used PecFent bottles. The patient should be instructed how to do this correctly.
If there are any unwanted therapeutic sprays remaining in the bottle, the patient should be instructed to expel these by aiming the spray away from themselves (and any other people) until the red number "8" appears in the counting window and there are no more full therapeutic sprays obtainable from the bottle.
After the counter has advanced to "8", the patient should continue to push down on the finger grips (there will be some increased resistance) a total of four times in order to expel any residual medicine from the bottle.
After the 8 therapeutic sprays have been emitted, the patient will not era a click and the counter will not advance beyond "8"; further sprays emitted will not be full sprays and should not be used therapeutically.
As soon a PecFent is no longer needed, patients and members of their household must be advised to systemically dispose of any bottles remaining from a prescription as soon as possible by returning them to their child-resistant container and discarding them, according to local requirements or by returning them to the pharmacy.
