Nebulization with CAYSTON typically requires about 2-3 minutes for each dose. The 3 daily doses can be taken flexibly to fit within patients' daily routine, when taken at least 4 hours apart.
Patients should be in an environment with a flat, stable surface to prepare their CAYSTON dose and where they can sit in a relaxed, upright position. Patients should clean the Altera Handset after each dose to prevent the aerosol head from clogging. Patients should also disinfect the Altera Handset at the end of each treatment day to reduce bacterial contamination.
