What is Breo Ellipta?
Breo Ellipta is a prescription medicine indicated for short-term prevention and treatment of asthma symptoms such as wheezing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath in adults who need a combination of inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) and a long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (LABA) medicine. This medication is not recommended for patients with asthma that can be well-controlled with an asthma control medication like an ICS medication.
This medicine is also used for the long-term treatment of symptoms of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), including emphysema and chronic bronchitis.
Breo Ellipta drug class
Breo Ellipta belongs to the classification of Beta2 Agonists; Corticosteroids, Inhalants, Respiratory Inhalant Combos. It contains a combination of fluticasone furoate, an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS), and a long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (LABA) drug called vilanterol. Fluticasone furoate being an ICS works by reducing inflammation or swelling in the lungs. Vilanterol is a LABA that relaxes the muscles around the lung airways, preventing symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest tightness, and wheezing.
When you use vilanterol alone, it may increase the risk of hospitalizations and death due to asthma problems. But when used together with an ICS, such as Brio Ellipta medicine, there is no significant increased risk of hospitalizations and death due to asthma problems.
Remember that this medication is not intended to relieve sudden breathing problems (bronchospasm or asthma attack). Use your rescue inhaler in case you experience sudden breathing problems.
