See how COMBIVENT RESPIMAT works
Because chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) gets worse over time, you may experience trouble breathing, even if you’re already using a daily medicine or a rescue inhaler for COPD. When you need more help with COPD symptoms, your doctor may prescribe COMBIVENT RESPIMAT.
COMBIVENT RESPIMAT is a short-acting, daily COPD medicine
Short-acting means it only stays in your body for a short time. In the case of COMBIVENT RESPIMAT, that time is 4-6 hours. That's why you can take COMBIVENT RESPIMAT 4 times a day. COMBIVENT RESPIMAT 4 times a day may help keep your airways open.
Not to exceed 6 inhalations in 24 hours. Follow directions from your doctor.
Do not use COMBIVENT RESPIMAT more often than your doctor has directed. Deaths have been reported with similar inhaled medicines in asthma patients who use the medicine too much. Seek immediate medical attention if your treatment with COMBIVENT RESPIMAT becomes less effective for symptomatic relief, your symptoms become worse, and/or you need to use the product more frequently than usual.
