Breo Ellipta inhalers contains a combination of fluticasone and vilanterol. Inflammatory substances in the body are prevented from being released by fluticasone. By relaxing muscles in the airways, Vilanterol works as a bronchodilator to improve breathing. By reducing inflammation (swelling) and opening up the airways in your lungs, fluticasone (corticosteroid) and vilanterol (long-acting beta-agonist) make breathing easier.
It is possible to use Breo Ellipta alone or in combination with other medications. However, it would be vital to discuss any medication usage with your healthcare specialist.
The drug Breo Ellipta is classified as a Beta2 agonist, corticosteroids, inhalants, and respiratory inhalant combinations.
The Breo Ellipta combination is a once-daily medicine used in adults with asthma and COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) to treat symptoms and prevent attacks of bronchospasm and asthma.
Breo Ellipta is intended for long-term treatment of COPD. For people with asthma, this medicine is used for short-term treatment until symptoms are controlled by other medications.
In people with asthma, Vilanterol alone may increase their risk of death. As a combination product, fluticasone and vilanterol do not increase this risk.
The safety and effectiveness of Breo Ellipta in children are unknown. Breo is only available as a brand-name drug. Currently, it isn’t available in generic form.
Ellipta is also found in Trelegy.
You should inform your doctor or pharmacist if you have any allergies to fluticasone or vilanterol. There is a possibility that this product contains inactive ingredients (such as milk proteins), which may cause allergic reactions. Talk to your pharmacist for more details.
Tell your doctor or pharmacist about your medical history before taking this medication, especially if you suffer from high blood pressure, bone loss (osteoporosis), depression, diabetes, eye problems (cataracts, glaucoma), heart problems (angina, irregular heartbeat), a recent infection, liver problems, hyperthyroidism, seizures.
There is a possibility that fluticasone/vilanterol may cause a condition that affects the heart rhythm (QT prolongation). It is rare for QT prolongation to cause serious (rarely fatal) fast/irregular heartbeats and other symptoms (such as severe dizziness, fainting) that require immediate medical attention.
Certain medical conditions or drugs that may cause QT prolongation may increase your risk of QT prolongation. Tell your doctor or pharmacist about all medications you take before taking fluticasone/vilanterol, as well as any of the following conditions: certain heart problems (heart failure, slow heartbeat, QT prolongation in the EKG), family history of certain heart problems (QT prolongation in the EKG, sudden cardiac death).
You may also be at risk of QT prolongation if you have low potassium or magnesium levels in your blood. The risk may increase if you use certain drugs (such as diuretics/”water pills”) or if you suffer from conditions such as severe sweating, diarrhea, or vomiting. Consult your doctor before using fluticasone/vilanterol.
It may be harder for your body to respond to physical stress if you have switched from a corticosteroid taken by mouth (such as prednisone tablets) to this inhaler within the past 12 months, or if you have been using it in high doses for a long time. In case of a serious illness or injury, tell your doctor or dentist that you are taking this medication or have taken a corticosteroid by mouth within the past 12 months before having surgery or emergency treatment. If you feel unusually tired or lose weight, tell your doctor as soon as possible. Make sure you have a medical ID bracelet or warning card that states you use (or have used) corticosteroids.
Be sure to tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription and nonprescription medications).
Fluticasone/vilanterol may increase your risk of getting an infection or worsen an existing infection. Keep away from people who have infections that can spread to others (e.g. chicken pox, measles, flu). If you have been exposed to an infection or would like more information, contact your doctor.
A child’s growth may be temporarily slowed down if this medication is taken for an extended period of time. Growth can also be slowed down by poorly controlled asthma. Regularly check your child’s height with the doctor.
