What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

You and your healthcare provider will need to form a plan for your use of Exubera, including what you should do if you miss a dose. This will depend on factors such as how much you have eaten, your blood sugar level, and other medications you have taken.

Strengths of Exubera

Exubera comes in blister packets containing 1 mg Exubera or 3 mg Exubera. These blisters come together in the following packages (they cannot be purchased separately at this time):
  • Exubera Combination Pack 12, containing 90 blisters of 1 mg Exubera and 90 blisters of 3 mg Exubera
  • Exubera Combination Pack 15, containing 180 blisters of 1 mg Exubera and 90 blisters of 3 mg Exubera
  • Exubera Kit, containing 180 blisters of 1 mg Exubera, 90 blisters of 3 mg Exubera, an Exubera inhaler, and a replacement chamber.
All of these packages also contain two Exubera release units. The release unit is a part of the inhaler that must be replaced every two weeks. Exubera inhalers, chambers (part of the inhaler), and release units can also be purchased separately.
Depending on your dose, you may have extra Exubera blisters that you cannot use. Unfortunately, as mentioned, three 1-mg blisters cannot be used in place of one 3-mg blister.

Generic Exubera

Currently, there is no generic Exubera available (see Generic Exubera).
