What is ARNUITY ELLIPTA?
- ARNUITY ELLIPTA is a prescription inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) medicine taken as 1 inhalation, once daily, for the control and prevention of asthma in adults and children aged 5 years and older.
- ARNUITY helps to prevent and control symptoms of asthma.
- ARNUITY is not used to relieve sudden breathing problems and will not replace a rescue inhaler. Always have a rescue inhaler, such as albuterol, with you to treat sudden breathing problems.
ARNUITY should be taken once a day, at the same time each day. Have a plan. Make ARNUITY part of your personal health routine by pairing it with another daily activity ── like brushing your teeth at bedtime or putting in your contact lenses. Find what works best for you and stick with it.
ARNUITY has been shown to improve breathing all day and all night. It may take up to 2 weeks or longer after starting ARNUITY to see maximum benefit.
You can REACT to asthma symptoms or you can also help CONTROL them.
As you work with your healthcare provider to manage your asthma symptoms, it’s important to understand the differences between a rescue medicine like albuterol and a long-term controller medicine like ARNUITY.
(short-acting rescue inhaler)
It’s called a rescue inhaler for a reason. It should be used to treat the sudden symptoms of asthma. Rescue inhalers are not intended for long-term control of asthma symptoms.
Current asthma guidelines suggest that if you are using your rescue inhaler more than 2 days a week to treat sudden symptoms, your asthma may not be well controlled.
(long-term control medicine)
ARNUITY helps to prevent and control your asthma symptoms. Using it once a day, every day, can help improve your breathing. In addition, if you use ARNUITY every day, you may have more days without the need for a rescue inhaler.
ARNUITY ELLIPTA is not a rescue inhaler and should not be used to give you fast relief from your asthma attack. Always have a rescue inhaler, such as albuterol, with you to treat sudden symptoms.
Your results may vary.
