FORMOTEROL FUMARATE DIHYDRATE
FORMAXA 12 micrograms/dose, inhalation powder, hard capsule

Therapeutic indications
Formoterol is indicated as add on therapy to maintenance treatment with inhaled corticosteroids, for the relief of broncho-obstructive symptoms and prevention of exercise-induced symptoms, in patients with asthma when adequate treatment with corticosteroids is not sufficient. Formoterol is also indicated for the relief of broncho-obstructive symptoms in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
It is recommended that therapy be started by physicians who specialize in pulmonology or pediatrics.

DEVICE
The easy to handle device system that delivers the right dose of the drug in every use.

FORMAXA is inspiratory flow driven which means that, when the patient inhales through the mouthpiece, the substance will follow the inspired air into the airways.
To ensure appropriate administration of the medicinal product, the physician or the nursing staff should train the patient in the use of the inhaler.
It is important for the patient to know that the hypromellose capsule may break when punctured in the capsule chamber, and small pieces of hypromellose may reach the mouth and pharynx at inhalation. This can be minimized by avoiding pushing the puncture buttons more often than once.


Excipients: lactose monohydrate (which contains milk proteins), lactose anhydrous
Shell of the capsule: hypromellose

Package of 60 hard capsules or + inhaler device.
