Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Adasuve include the following:
- This medication comes in the form of a powder that is inhaled by mouth. It is given as a single dose every 24 hours, as needed.
- Adasuve is only given by a healthcare provider. He or she will show you the correct way to use it right before your dose.
- You can take Adasuve with food or on an empty stomach.
- Adasuve is supplied in a single-use inhaler. The inhaler may become warm during use. It may also produce a flash of light and clicking sounds while you are using it. This is normal and expected.
- For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Carefully follow your healthcare provider's instructions for properly inhaling this medication.
There is only one standard dose of Adasuve, regardless of your age or weight. As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.

If reactions do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
Common Adasuve side effects include but are not limited to:
- A bad taste in the mouth
- Sore throat.
