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

    TRELEGY ELLIPTA is a prescription medication used to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). TRELEGY ELLIPTA contains a combination of three different medications that are used as maintenance therapy to improve breathing in people with COPD.

    trelegy Ellipta uses

    Directions

    Inhale one inhalation of TRELEGY ELLIPTA once daily.

    After taking a TRELEGY ELLIPTA dosage, always rinse the mouth with water without swallowing after use, as the ingredient fluticasone can increase the risk of oropharyngeal candidiasis (thrush).

    Ingredients

    Fluticasone Fumarate

    Fluticasone fumarate is an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) which works by reducing inflammation in the cells of the lungs. Inflammation narrows the passages of the lungs and makes it difficult to breathe. In patients with COPD, cells of the immune system are overactive and ICSs help to reduce inflammation and make breathing easier.

    Umeclidinium

    Umeclidinium is a long-acting muscarinic antagonist (LAMA) or anticholinergic medication. Anticholinergics work by binding to smooth muscle cells of the lungs and relaxing the airways.

    Vilanterol

    Vilanterol is a long-acting beta-agonist (LABA). Vilanterol works by attaching to beta-receptors, which are located on the surface of smooth muscle cells in the lungs. By attaching to beta-receptors, vilanterol increases levels of the signaling molecule cyclic AMP (cAMP) and causes the muscles of the lungs to relax.

    Cautions

    Do not use TRELEGY ELLIPTA for acute bronchospasm or the treatment of asthma. If you are having trouble breathing, a rescue inhaler, like albuterol, should be used for immediate relief. TRELEGY ELLIPTA is a chronic medication and takes several days of regular use to begin working.

    TRELEGY ELLIPTA may increase the risk of pneumonia in patients with COPD.

    Use with caution if you have a chronic infection, fungal, viral, bacterial, tuberculosis, ocular herpes, or other chronic infections.

    Tell your doctor if you have a history of heart problems.

    Tell your doctor if you have a history of or current narrow-angle glaucoma as TRELEGY ELLIPTA may worsen the condition.

    TRELEGY ELLIPTA may worsen urinary retention in patients who have bladder-neck obstruction or benign prostatic hyperplasia.

    TRELEGY ELLIPTA has the potential to interact with many different medical conditions. Speak with your doctor or pharmacist for a full list of precautions.
