Breelib Monthly Pack

The nebuliser unit and mouthpiece make up the Breelib Monthly Pack. The nebuliser unit and mouthpiece should only be used for a period of 4 weeks, as they may not work as well as they should if used for longer.

With each month's supply of drug you should receive a new Monthly Pack inside your box of Ventavis. If you do not receive a new Monthly Pack please let the Breelib Support Centre or your treating centre know.

After using your nebuliser unit and mouthpiece for 4 weeks place them in the household recycling or waste bin and use a new Monthly Pack.

Should you ever need a new nebuliser unit or mouthpiece, a spare Monthly Pack can be found in your RESERVE Breelib Starter Pack. If you ever use your RESERVE Monthly Pack please call the Breelib Support Centre as soon as possible to arrange a replacement.
