How Anoro Ellipta Works
Anoro Ellipta is used as a long-term, once a day maintenance treatment. It can make breathing easier for people who experience breathing difficulties (i.e., shortness of breath) due to a lung disease called Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or COPD (including chronic bronchitis and emphysema). Anoro Ellipta is a combination of a long-acting muscarinic antagonist (Umeclidinium, a LAMA) and a long acting beta agonist (Vilanterol, a LABA). Anoro Ellipta relaxes the muscles in the walls of small airways in the lungs. The two medicines in Anoro Ellipta work together to help open the airways and makes it easier for air to get in and out of the lungs. When taken regularly, Anoro Ellipta helps keep the airways open, which can help prevent shortness of breath and wheezing. There is no cure for COPD, but Anoro Ellipta helps to control it. If you are a smoker, it is important to quit smoking. This will help decrease the symptoms of COPD and potentially increase your lifespan.
