Breztri Aerosphere is an inhaled medication that is widely used to relieve chronic obstructive pulmonary disease symptoms. It is a prescription drug.

Breztri Aerosphere is not intended to treat the symptoms of asthma because it contains formoterol fumarate, which, if used apart, can cause dangerous asthma conditions. Breztri Aerosphere helps to restore breathing and prevent exacerbation of COPD reactions. The medicine is available in the form of a spray.

Breztri Aerosphere is not a rescue inhaler. You should contact your healthcare provider to prescribe a rescue inhaler if you experience sudden breathing problems.

Application Method

The medication consists of three drugs including budesonide (a corticosteroid), formoterol fumarate (a beta 2-agonist) and glycopyrrolate (an anticholinergic agent). Commonly, the Breztri Aerosphere inhaler is used 2 times a day, two inhalations in the morning and in the evening. More than 2 inhalations per day are not recommended. Before taking the inhaler, read the instructions, and if you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

To avoid developing an infection in the throat or mouth, after each dose of the medicine, rinse your mouth with water and spit out the water without swallowing it.

If you experience extreme worsening of your breathing conditions, you should use a rescue inhaler, but not Breztri Aerosphere.

It is forbidden to spray the contents of the inhaler into the eyes. If, for some reason, the drug gets into your eyes, you should immediately rinse your eyes with running water to avoid severe redness and irritation.

Side Effects

Like most medicines, Breztri Aerosphere can cause some side effects which may include: back pain, pneumonia, respiratory infections, headache, cough, joint pain.

When taking Breztri Aerosphere patients may be at risk of adrenal insufficiency, high blood pressure, chest pain. If you get any of these reactions, then you should discuss it with your doctor.

Patients with COPD are more susceptible to pneumonia. If you do not rinse your mouth with water in time, then thrush may develop.

If you experience any negative side effects that bother you, then you should seek medical help immediately. Contact your doctor or seek medical attention if you feel unwell or have severe breathing troubles as soon as possible after the inhalation.

The list of side effects in this article is not complete. For more detailed information about possible adverse reactions you should contact your doctor and carefully read the instructions for use that come with the medicine.
