Remember that COPD is a chronic disease, which means that it will not go away. Living with COPD every day can be hard, but maintenance medicines like nebulized BROVANA® (arformoterol tartrate) Inhalation Solution may help control your symptoms. Sticking with treatment is essential to managing your condition.
Maintenance medicines are meant to be taken every day on a regular basis. Even if you think you’re feeling better, it’s important to keep taking your maintenance medicine as prescribed.
Try to make taking your maintenance medicine part of your daily routine. For instance, you might take your medicine each day while watching the morning and evening news.
Be sure you understand your treatment regimen, including the differences between your maintenance and rescue medicines. Then plan when and how you will take your medicines, who will help you if needed, and how you will remember important instructions.
If you have questions about when or how to use your medicine, talk to your doctor.
Maintenance medicines like BROVANA do not relieve sudden symptoms of COPD. Always have a rescue inhaler medicine with you to treat sudden symptoms. If you do not have a rescue inhaler medicine, call your doctor to have one prescribed for you.
