WHY TUDORZA® PRESSAIR®?

(aclidinium bromide inhalation powder)

HOW TUDORZA MAY HELP

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

TUDORZA PRESSAIR COPD Treatment

The TUDORZA PRESSAIR inhaler has dual feedback features to let you know that you are getting the full dose of medicine.

Preloaded

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.

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).

How TUDORZA PRESSAIR Works

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:

  • A "click" you hear while inhaling confirms you are using the inhaler correctly
  • Plus a control window that changes from green to red when you have inhaled your full dose of medicine correctly

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Who should not use TUDORZA PRESSAIR?

Do not use TUDORZA PRESSAIR if you have a severe allergy to milk proteins, or are allergic to aclidinium bromide, or any of the ingredients in TUDORZA PRESSAIR. Ask your healthcare provider if you are not sure.

What should I tell my doctor before using TUDORZA?

Before you use TUDORZA, tell your doctor about all your medical conditions, including if you have eye problems (especially glaucoma), prostate or bladder problems, or problems passing urine. TUDORZA may make these problems worse.

Tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, including prescription and non-prescription medicines and eyedrops. Especially tell your doctor if you take anticholinergics (including tiotropium, ipratropium) or atropine.

Do not use TUDORZA more often than prescribed or take more medicine than prescribed for you.

Seek immediate medical help if your breathing problems worsen with TUDORZA, you need to use your rescue inhaler more often than usual, or your rescue inhaler does not work as well for you.

What are the possible side effects of TUDORZA?

TUDORZA can cause serious side effects. Stop taking TUDORZA and seek medical help right away if you experience:

  • Sudden shortness of breath immediately after use of TUDORZA
  • New or worsened symptoms of increased pressure in your eyes (acute narrow-angle glaucoma), which may include eye pain, nausea or vomiting, blurred vision, seeing halos or bright colors around lights, or red eyes. Using only eyedrops to treat these symptoms may not work and if not treated, this could lead to permanent loss of vision
  • Symptoms of new or worsened urinary retention (difficult, painful, or frequent urination, or urination in a weak stream or drips)
  • Serious allergic reactions including rash, hives, swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat; breathing problems; and itching
