Description

The Tudorza Pressair Inhaler is an inhaled medication consisting of a bronchodilator called aclidinium. We carry the brand choice of the Tudorza Pressair Inhaler, which is also known internationally as Eklira Genuair, in 400mcg!

The Tudorza Pressair Inhaler is used for the prevention of bronchospasm in adults with chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or other forms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Symptoms that may be present in these types of conditions include wheezing, shortness of breath, and chest tightness. This medication is not meant to help treat a sudden bronchospasm, but may help prevent the frequency or severity of the attacks.

Tudorza Pressair Inhaler (aclidinium bromide) is effective at preventing symptoms of COPD because as a bronchodilator, it is able to relax the airways surrounding muscles to allow easier breathing and reduces symptoms.
