Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Rotacap or a Rotahaler?

Short Answer

A Rotahaler is a device used to deliver fine dry powered medications that are measured out in Rotacap capsules.

Long Answer

Many people who suffer from asthma or COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) use dry powder inhalers (DPIs) to administer their medication. The Rotahaler is just one of many devices that are available. It uses special capsules, called Rotacaps, that contain the medication in a very fine powder form that is effectively delivered into the lungs when you inhale through the Rotahaler.

Other dry powder inhalers include:

  • Aerolizer
  • Handihaler
  • Diskus
  • Rotahaler
  • Turbuhaler
  • Twisthaler
