Sit comfortably, relax and breathe normally through the Rehaler for as long as you are experiencing aura symptoms.

If you need to swallow, drink or wipe your mouth it is fine to take the Rehaler out briefly, though you should try not to breathe without it.

When your aura symptoms are gone, adjust the green slider down to setting 1 (the lowest level).

Then breathe through the Rehaler for five more minutes before stopping.

If the aura starts coming back, we recommend that you use the Rehaler again.

It is important to use Rehaler as soon as the aura symptoms start. If you wait until the pain has already started, the effect of the treatment will likely not be as good as if you start early.

Using Rehaler raises the CO2 level in your body. By moving the green slider (step 2), you can change the CO2 level from the highest (setting 7) to the lowest (setting 1).

You need to adjust the green slider so the CO2 level is right for you. You do this by observing how you feel while using Rehaler and then consult the table below.

The feeling can change throughout the treatment period, so you might need to move the slider multiple times. Only move the slider every 5 minutes to ensure your body has time to adjust to the new setting.
