Although your pharmacist will store Foradil in the refrigerator, you should store it at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep each capsule in its original foil blister until just before you are ready to use it.
Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children.
What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?
If you do not take your Foradil as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
