Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets. Use exactly as directed by your healthcare provider.
Use Trelegy Ellipta at the same time each day, and not more than one inhalation once daily. You only need to inhale once a day because the effect of this medicine lasts for 24 hours.
Read and follow all patient instructions provided with the inhaler device. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you do not understand these instructions.
To prevent a yeast infection in your mouth, rinse with water (but do not swallow) after using Trelegy Ellipta.
Trelegy Ellipta is used only in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and should not be used to treat asthma.
Trelegy Ellipta is not a rescue medicine for bronchospasm attacks. Use only fast-acting inhalation medicine for an attack. Seek medical attention if your breathing problems get worse quickly, or if you think your medications are not working as well.
Your dose needs may change due to surgery, illness, stress, or worsened COPD. Do not change your dose or dosing schedule without your doctor’s advice.
You may need frequent medical tests. Your vision and your bone mineral density may also need to be checked.
Do not use a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose. If you forget to use a dose, use it as soon as you remember it and then use the next dose at the right time.
Store at room temperature; away from moisture, heat, and light. Keep the inhaler device in the sealed foil tray until ready to start using it.
