Did you ever wonder how an Advair Discus dispenser works? I did. Here's what I found.

Step 1: Remove the Outer Cover

 Peel the labels off to expose the center axle.
This whole thing just snaps together and will just as easily unsnap to come apart.
Pry the outer case away from the inner carrier and it will pop off.
Once free, the inner carrier easily slides out.
Weird I just opened my old one a few days ago, for the same purpose. To find out how it works.<br />
Every time I see one of these I think of that <a href="http://www.genitron.com/Unique/Turbiaux-Palm-Pistol.jpg" rel="nofollow">pistol that hides in the palm.</a>
This is incredibly timely!&nbsp; I was just wondering exactly how it worked this morning!!!&nbsp; Thanks for the great article.
&nbsp;I did this because some friends were wondering if there was any way to overdose. Due to the nature of the advancing medicine pods, I would say, NO there is no way to OD on advair.
Very interesting, and good documentation of the disassembly!<br /> <br /> So theoretically, this could be made much &quot;greener&quot; by providing the user with a single dispenser case, and just refilling it with new spools of medication.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Of course, that's how birth-control packaging is supposed to work, too, but they send my wife a whole complete plastic case with blister pack for each one :-(<br />
