A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

Anoro Elipta is a prescription medication for treatment of COPD, bronchitis, and emphysema. It is in inhaler form and it works effectively to improve lung function both during the day and overnight. The Anoro Elipta inhaler is a once-daily COPD maintenance inhaler and is not a rescue inhaler for instant relief from COPD breathing difficulties. Anoro Elipta provides relief from bronchitis and emphysema too, but Anoro Elipta is not an asthma inhaler. You can buy Anoro Elipta with a prescription at most pharmacies and your Anoro Elipta dose will be determined by your doctor.
Peel back the lid to open the tray on your Anoro Elipta inhaler. Fully open the cover of the inhaler until you hear a clicking sound and see a decrease in the number on the counter on the front of the inhaler. (Inhaler will come showing 30 doses).
Each time you open the cover, you prepare 1 dose of medicine.
Be aware that if you open and close the cover without inhaling the medicine, you will lose the dose. Do not open the cover of the inhaler until you are ready to use it.
With dose loaded, place the mouthpiece in your mouth and take a long, steady, deep breath in through your mouth. Do not breathe in through your nose.
Remove the inhaler from your mouth and hold your breath for about 3 to 4 seconds. Then slowly and gently breathe out.
Do not take another dose from the inhaler. You can never take more than one dose at a time.
The active ingredients in Anoro Elipta Inhaler are umeclidinium and vilanterol.
Never exceed the dosage regulations for Anoro Elipta. Meaning that you only use this COPD inhaler once a day. Do not use Anoro Elipta to treat sudden symptoms of COPD. Always have a rescue inhaler with you to treat sudden symptoms.
Do not use if you have a severe allergy to milk proteins or are allergic to any of the ingredients in this medication.
There are interaction risks between Anoro Elipta and certain Rx medications that contain a long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (LABA) or an anticholinergic for any reason. You are advised to inform your physician of all medications you are currently taking when you speak with your doctor regarding COPD inhalers and before you buy Anoro Elipta.
Side effects from an Anoro Elipta dose are uncommon, but some users may experience chest pain, increased blood pressure, fast or irregular heartbeat, headache, tremor, or nervousness.
If you experience these side effects, you should discontinue use and speak to your physician regarding other COPD treatment options.
