How to care for the SPIOLTO RESPIMAT: Clean the mouthpiece including the metal part inside the mouthpiece with a damp cloth or tissue only, at least once a week.

When to get a new SPIOLTO RESPIMAT: The SPIOLTO RESPIMAT inhaler contains 60 puffs (30 doses) if used as indicated (two puffs/Once daily).
The dose indicator shows approximately how much medication is left.
