What is Trelegy Ellipta?
Trelegy Ellipta (generic name: fluticasone furoate, umeclidinium, & vilanterol) is an oral inhalation used as a long-term maintenance treatment for an ongoing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) with chronic bronchitis and emphysema. It reduces exacerbations of COPD among patients with a history of exacerbations. It also prevents and treats symptoms caused by asthma, such as wheezing and shortness of breath.
This inhalation powder is a combination of synthetic trifluorinated corticosteroid, long-acting muscarinic agonist, and long-acting beta-agonist. It works by inhibiting inflammation, promoting bronchodilation, and suppressing the release of mediators of immediate hypersensitivity from cells. It is available in Trelegy Ellipta 200/62.5/25 mcg and Trelegy Ellipta 100/62.5/25 mcg inhalers.
How to use Trelegy Ellipta
To begin, read the medication information label that comes with this inhalation. Do not administer this medication if you have not fully understood all the instructions and information in the guide. If some details are unclear or you are unsure how to use it, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
Use this inhaler regularly and make a dosing schedule to achieve the full benefits of this drug. Use it exactly as directed. Avoid altering your dosage or using it more frequently than needed as it may only increase the risk of side effects. Do not stop taking it abruptly.
If you are prescribed with other inhalers, there should be at least a minute of interval. This would allow proper drug absorption.
Step by step guide in using Trelegy Ellipta:

- Slide the cover of the inhaler downward. You will see the mouthpiece and hear a click. The number on the counter will count down by 1. This means that your inhaler is ready to use.
