A patient brings in a prescription for an albuterol inhaler 2 puffs four times daily. You figure
that this is 8 puffs per day. The inhaler has 200 puffs. What is the days’ supply?

200 puffs x 1 day/8 puffs = x days
x = 25 days

Note that some inhalers have a beyond-use date once the outer wrapping is removed. Do not enter a days’
supply for longer than this number of days. Nebulized meds. For nebulized meds, you need to know how many vials are contained in each box. (A patient might need to use more than one vial for a dose. However, partial vials are generally discarded after use and so each vial can’t be counted more than once toward the days’ supply.)
