Does Your Child Have Asthma?

ProAir RespiClick® is FDA-approved for kids ages 4 and up!

Check your child’s symptoms.

Is your child:

  • Having trouble breathing during or after playing?
  • Wheezing?
  • Coughing during or after playing?
If your child is experiencing any of the bronchoconstriction symptoms listed above, talk with your child’s healthcare provider. Ask if ProAir RespiClick® can help.

Get your kids involved.

Encouraging your child to help manage their own condition is an important lesson that can last a lifetime. And that includes understanding what causes asthma. Take a few moments to talk to your child, and make sure they understand the basics of asthma and how it affects their bodies.

ProAir RespiClick® is different from press and breathe inhalers.

So it’s very important to learn how to use it correctly. Don’t worry—a friendly unicorn and a zany octopus (with only six legs) are here to help show you (and your child) all the dos, don’ts, and how-tos!

3 basic steps to use ProAir RespiClick ®

Please see the full Patient Instructions for Use found in the full Prescribing Information.

1. Open


2. Inhale
3. Close


Make sure the red cap is closed before each dose.

Hold the inhaler upright as you open the red cap fully.

Pull the red cap all the way back until you feel and hear a “CLICK.”

Your child’s ProAir RespiClick® inhaler is now ready to use.

Do not open the red cap unless you are taking a dose.


Before your child inhales, ask them to breathe out (exhale) through their mouth, pushing as much air out of their lungs as possible.

Do not let your child exhale into the inhaler mouthpiece.

Put the mouthpiece in your child’s mouth, closing their lips tightly around it.

Do not let your child’s lips or fingers block the vent above the mouthpiece.

Tell your child to breathe in quickly and deeply through the mouth to deliver the dose of medicine to their lungs.

Remove the inhaler from his or her mouth.

Ask your child to hold their breath for about 10 seconds, or as long as they comfortably can.

ProAir RespiClick® delivers their dose of medicine as a very fine powder that your child may not taste or feel. Do not have your child take an extra dose from the inhaler even if they do not taste or feel the medicine.


Close the red cap firmly over the mouthpiece.

Always close the red cap after each inhalation so that your child’s inhaler will be ready for their next dose.

If your child needs another dose, close the red cap and repeat all of the steps.

ProAir RespiClick® contains a powder, and must be kept clean and dry at all times.

How to Store ProAir RespiClick®
