What is a Generic Drug?

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.

    Description

    BREO ELLIPTA (Umeclidinium) is a prescription that contains a combination of medications and is prescribed to treat asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Asthma and COPD are diseases of the lungs that make it difficult for a person to breathe. BREO ELLIPTA is a daily medication that helps to reduce some of the symptoms like shortness of breath, coughing, and wheezing.

    Directions

    The usual dosage is one inhalation once daily when using BREO ELLIPTA for cough and the reduction of other symptoms.

    After inhalation, rinse the mouth with water and do not swallow. If the mouth is not rinsed after use, the risk of oropharyngeal candidiasis (oral thrush) may increase.

    BREO ELLIPTA should be taken every day. It is not a rescue medication and should not be used for the relief of acute bronchospasm. In the case of acute symptoms like shortness of breath, an inhaled medication like albuterol should be used for relief instead of a maintenance inhaler like BREO ELLIPTA.

    If used regularly, BREO ELLIPTA will reduce the severity of asthma and COPD symptoms and reduce the need for a rescue inhaler.

    Ingredients

    Fluticasone furoate

    Fluticasone is an inhaled corticosteroid medication (ICS). Corticosteroids are signaling molecules that reduce inflammation. During bronchospasms, the airways of the lungs are often swollen and inflamed, and regular usage of an ICS decreases this.

    Vilanterol

    Vilanterol is a long-acting beta2-agonist (LABA). Beta receptors are present on the surface of muscle cells in the lungs. By activating these receptors, vilanterol relaxes the muscles of the airway, making it easier to breathe.

    Cautions
