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.

  • Product Details


    Ultibro Breezhaler is a combination of indacaterol and glycopyrronium bromide, used to provide long-term relief for adults with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It works by acting as an ultra-long-acting beta-adrenoceptor agonist and a long-acting muscarinic antagonist, which help expand the airways and make it easier to breathe. It is used as a maintenance treatment to help improve the quality of life for individuals living with COPD.

    Routes of administration



    One inhalation of Ultibro (glycopyrrolate 15.6 mcg-indacaterol 27.5 mcg) is typically taken orally once per day. The medication is administered using an inhaler device, which requires you to inhale the content of one capsule per dose. Do not take more than the recommended dosage or use more frequently, as it may lead to adverse effects. Keep in mind that this medication is intended for treating COPD and should not be used to treat asthma, as doing so may increase the risk of asthma-related death.


    Ultibro Breezhaler is a combination medication composed of two active substances: indacaterol (85 micrograms) and glycopyrronium (43 micrograms). Indacaterol maleate is an ultra long-acting beta-adrenoceptor agonist (ultra-LABA), while glycopyrronium bromide aids in further lung function improvement and symptom relief.


    The following list details some conditions and situations in which the use of Ultibro Breezhaler is not recommended:

    • Hypersensitivity to indacaterol maleate or glycopyrronium bromide
    • Allergy to any other component of the medication
