See How TUDORZA Can Help
TUDORZA PRESSAIR is a prescription medicine used long term, 2 times each day to treat
the symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), including chronic bronchitis and emphysema.
TUDORZA is not a rescue medicine and should not be used for treating sudden
When taken as prescribed, TUDORZA may help treat the symptoms of COPD. TUDORZA can help:
Improve breathing on the first day, although it may take longer to feel the full effects of the
medicine and works best when taken every day
Keep the airways in your lungs open over time
Reduce your use of rescue inhalers; however, it does not replace them
TUDORZA is taken by breathing the medication in through an inhaler called PRESSAIR™. The key
features of the PRESSAIR inhaler are:
Preloaded – The inhaler comes ready to use with 60 doses of medication. Since TUDORZA is taken twice daily, 60 doses will last you 30 days. The doses are preloaded, which means you don’t need to put the medicine into the inhaler when you want to use it
Colored control window and "click" sound – The inhaler includes a colored control window that turns from red to green when the dose is ready, and from green to red when you've inhaled. The "click" you hear while inhaling indicates you are using the inhaler correctly. You should keep breathing in after the "click" to be sure you get the full dose. When the window is red, you have inhaled your full dose of medicine correctly
Dose indicator – The dose indicator shows you approximately how many doses remain in the inhaler. You will see the number of doses count down in the dose indicator as you use the inhaler. The dose indicator moves down slowly, displaying intervals of 10 (60, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10, 0)
When should I get a new PRESSAIR inhaler?
A red band will begin to appear within the dose indicator when you are nearing your last dose, which means you should obtain a new PRESSAIR inhaler. You should discard the inhaler and start a new one when:
The marking "0" with a red background shows in the middle of the indicator, or
The device locks out, or
45 days have passed since you took the inhaler out of the sealed pouch, whichever comes first
If your TUDORZA PRESSAIR inhaler appears to be damaged, or if you lose the cap, your inhaler should be replaced.
