Are these equivalent?
I opened my new medication this morning and found when I peeled a multitude of labels of the packet this Italian job!
A little further investigation with google, I found an Italian page similar to UK MIM's. Where with google translation it says:-
"Each delivered dose (the dose that leaves the mouthpiece) contains:
budesonide 80 micrograms / inhalation and formoterol fumarate dihydrate 4.5 micrograms / inhalation.
Each metered dose contains: budesonide 100 micrograms / inhalation and formoterol fumarate dihydrate 6 micrograms / inhalation."
Now my question is:
"What is the difference between a delivered dose and a metered dose"?
and where does the difference go?
