When taken as prescribed, TUDORZA may help treat COPD symptoms.
TUDORZA may help:
Improve your breathing on the first day
However, it may take longer to feel the full effects of the medicine
Keep the airways in your lungs open over time
Reduce your daily use of a rescue inhaler
TUDORZA does not replace the use of rescue inhalers
The TUDORZA PRESSAIR inhaler has dual feedback features to let you know that you are getting the full dose of medicine.
The inhaler comes ready to use with 60 doses of medication already preloaded for you. Since TUDORZA is taken twice daily, 60 doses will last you 30 days.
Colored control window and "click" sound
The inhaler includes a colored control window that turns from red to green when the dose is ready for inhalation, and from green to red after you've inhaled your full dose of medicine. 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. If the window is red, you have inhaled your full dose of medicine correctly.
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).
TUDORZA is taken by breathing the medication in through an inhaler called PRESSAIR.
The PRESSAIR inhaler lets you know in 2 clear ways that you’ve taken your medicine correctly:
