You will need to rinse your mouth, cough, and spit out the medicine from your throat after receiving it using a nebulizer.

You will need to urinate right away and as often as you can for 4 to 6 hours after receiving this medicine. Drink plenty of fluids before and after receiving this medicine so you will pass more urine. This will help flush the medicine from your body.
