Here are the general steps on how to put medication in a nebulizer:

  1. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.

  2. Assemble the nebulizer according to the manufacturer's instructions.

  3. Measure the prescribed amount of medication using a syringe or dropper, and pour it into the nebulizer cup.

  4. Some nebulizers may have a maximum fill line that should not be exceeded, so make sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions.

  5. If multiple medications are prescribed, add them to the nebulizer cup one at a time, as instructed by the healthcare provider.

  6. Screw the nebulizer cup onto the nebulizer machine, making sure it is securely attached.

  7. Attach the mouthpiece or mask to the nebulizer.

  8. Turn on the nebulizer and allow it to run until all the medication has been misted into the air, which typically takes 10 to 15 minutes.
