What is Breo Ellipta prescribed for?
Breo 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 Breo Ellipta is a long-term maintenance medication, it can end up being costly. You can buy Breo Ellipta online at My Drug Center at an affordable price. 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 Breo Ellipta work?
Breo 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 Fluticasone/Vilanterol. When the Fluticasone/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.
