What are some maintenance COPD treatment options?

COPD treatment should match your needs.

Most treatments for COPD are inhaled, either through a handheld inhaler or a nebulizer system.

COPD Treatment Devices

COPD Inhalers

Inhaled COPD medications come in several different types of inhaler devices, including slow-mist inhalers, metered-dose inhalers, and dry-powder inhalers. They deliver medication in slightly different ways. You and your doctor should decide which type of medicine and inhaler best suits your abilities and lifestyle.

UTIBRON NEOHALER is a dry-powder inhaler that's used twice a day. Go to How to Use the UTIBRON NEOHALER to learn more.

COPD Nebulizers

A nebulizer is a device that turns the liquid medicine into a mist which is then inhaled through a mouthpiece or a mask. Learn about a nebulized COPD treatment. Pressurized air is used to change the medication into a fine mist that, after set up, can be inhaled while you breathe normally through a mouthpiece or mask. After each use, the nebulizer should be cleaned according to the manufacturer's instructions. Learn about a nebulized COPD treatment.

All maintenance treatments require a rescue inhaler for sudden COPD symptoms. Always have a short-acting beta2-agonist medicine (rescue inhaler) with you to treat sudden symptoms of COPD. If you do not have a rescue inhaler, contact your health care provider to have one prescribed for you.

A long-term maintenance medicine for COPD may help control your symptoms. Talk to your doctor about your treatment plan.

There are several treatment options that may help manage symptoms of COPD.

Bronchodilators help open your airways to make it easier to breathe.

Long-acting maintenance medicines are taken every day to prevent COPD symptoms. They do NOT treat sudden symptoms. Even if you are prescribed a maintenance medicine, you should always have a rescue inhaler with you to treat sudden symptoms. If you do not have a rescue inhaler, call your doctor to have one prescribed for you.

Short-acting rescue medicines are taken as needed for sudden symptoms.

UTIBRON NEOHALER is a combination of a long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist, or LABA, medicine (indacaterol) and an anticholinergic medicine (glycopyrrolate). UTIBRON NEOHALER is used long term, twice each day (morning and evening), to treat symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), including chronic bronchitis and/or emphysema.
