Daliresp is an oral tablet made up of a selective phosphodiesterase-4 inhibitor called roflumilast. This medication can be purchased by its brand name Daliresp or its generic alternative roflumilast. Both are available in 500mcg doses.
Daliresp (Roflumilast) is used to control and prevent symptoms, such as wheezing and shortness of breath, caused by ongoing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease-COPD (lung disease) including bronchitis. For best effect, this medication should be used in combination with bronchodilator medications such as salmeterol or ipratropium when treating COPD. Daliresp is not a bronchodilator so it will not help an attack that has already begun. This medication works by reducing the swelling and irritation found in your airways.
Directions from your doctor can be found on the prescription bottle. You must follow his or her directions carefully.
Daliresp is taken once a day and can be taken with or without food.
Weigh yourself when you take your medication and keep track. This medication can cause weight loss and should be monitored.
