A dry powder inhaler (DPI) is a handheld device that lets you breathe (inhale) medicine into your lungs. The medicine used is a very fine powder. You may not feel it going into your lungs. This is normal.
You may need a DPI as part of your long-term treatment to prevent or control breathing problems. In most cases, the medicine in a DPI does not take away sudden symptoms.
