What is Anoro Ellipta?
Anoro Ellipta is often prescribed for long-term maintenance treatment of Bronchospasm, which is associated with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that impairs the airflow out of your lungs. Symptoms include breathing difficulty, cough, mucus (sputum) production and wheezing.
Bronchitis and Emphysema are the two most common conditions that contribute to COPD.
When you have Bronchitis, your bronchial tubes become inflamed and narrowed and your lungs produce more mucus, which can further block the narrowed tubes. You develop a chronic cough trying to clear your airways.
Emphysema occurs when the walls between the air sacs in your lungs become damaged and lose their elasticity. As the walls of the air sacs also sustain damage, instead of many tiny air sacs, there are fewer but larger ones that reduce the amount of gas exchange.
Because Anoro Ellipta is a long-term maintenance medication, it can end up being costly. You can buy Anoro Ellipta online at My Drug Center at an affordable price. You can also buy the Umeclidinium/Vilanterol generic as well. The Umeclidinium/Vilanterol generic is less costly because it is not a brand-name drug. With proper management, most people with COPD can achieve symptom control and quality of life, as well as reduced risk of other associated conditions.
How does Anoro Ellipta work?
Anoro Ellipta is indicated for the long-term, once-daily treatment to reduce exacerbations in COPD patients. Breo Ellipta is a medication that comes in the form of inhalation powders for oral inhalation, and contains the active ingredients Umeclidinium/Vilanterol. When the Umeclidinium/Vilanterol dosage is inhaled, it is taken straight into the lungs where it blocks the receptors that are found on the muscle surrounding your airways. This action stops acetycholine from acting on the receptors that cause the muscle to narrow and make it difficult to breathe.
Before taking your prescribed Anoro Ellipta dosage, read all the instructions that was provided by your pharmacist. This is important so that you understand how to use the inhaler and blister pack to administer the right dose of medication. Take one Anoro Ellipta dosage, once a day.
This medication is not meant for quick relief from asthma attacks. You should also have a rescue inhaler on hand. Allow at least a minute between use of multiple inhalers and rinse your mouth with water to prevent infections. Never swallow the rinse water.
Make sure you take Anoro Ellipta at the same time each day to create a routine for yourself and to ensure an even spread of medication in your system. For optimal results take this medication on a regular basis. Do not change or increase your dose. You should continue taking this medication even if you feel well.
This medication may contain medical and non medical ingredients that could cause an allergic reaction. Consult with your doctor about any known allergies before taking Anoro Ellipta. Speak with your doctor about any known medical conditions relating to high blood pressure, bone loss, depression, diabetes, eye problems, heart problems, recent infections, liver problems, overactive thyroid, and seizures. Tell your doctor about any current medications or supplementation to avoid interactions with Anoro Ellipta.
Keep track which inhalers are used more often in case there is a worsening of COPD symptoms. Speak with your doctor if you find that you need your rescue inhaler more often.
You may experience irregular heart rhythm (QT prolongation) while taking Anoro Ellipta. Risk of QT prolongation is increased with salt deficiencies and use of diuretics can also increase this risk.
Long term use of croticosteroids can cause your body to have challenges responding to physical stress. You should tell your doctor or dentist that you are using this medication before any surgery, operations, or any procedures. If this medication is required for long term use have an ID bracelet or documentation. This can help identify the use of this medication in cases where you might be unable to speak or explain your condition.
While taking Anoro Ellipta your body may become more prone to infections. Washing your hands and practising good hygiene can help prevent the spread of infections or other diseases. Avoid coming into contact with transmittable infections like the flu, measles or chickenpox.
