COMBIVENT can help people with COPD
If you have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), your doctor may have prescribed COMBIVENT. It's a bronchodilator — a medicine that opens your airways. And COMBIVENT is the only short-acting bronchodilator that provides two different medicines, ipratropium bromide and albuterol, in a single metered-dose inhaler (MDI). Working together, these medicines do more to open the airways than either medicine can do on its own.
COMBIVENT Inhalation Aerosol is indicated for use in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) on a regular aerosol bronchodilator (inhaler) who continue to have evidence of bronchospasm (airway narrowing) and who require a second bronchodilator.
Discover COMBIVENT RESPIMAT
For 15 years, COMBIVENT has been on the market as a metered-dose inhaler (MDI). But as of July 2013, COMBIVENT RESPIMAT will be the only inhaler available for COMBIVENT. COMBIVENT RESPIMAT is an inhaler that delivers the same medicine in a slow-moving, soft mist. Studies have shown that COMBIVENT RESPIMAT is just as effective at opening the airways as COMBIVENT MDI.
Why make the switch?
Under the Clean Air Act, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) made a rule that products containing certain propellants, including COMBIVENT MDI, be removed from the market.
COMBIVENT RESPIMAT doesn't contain any of these propellants, and it uses a spring mechanism to release the medication.
Talk to your doctor to see if COMBIVENT RESPIMAT is right for you.
