How ARNUITY ELLIPTA works
ARNUITY contains a medicine called fluticasone furoate, which is an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) medicine. ICS medicines help prevent symptoms of asthma by reducing airway inflammation. Inflammation can make your airways more sensitive and more narrow than usual, making it harder to breathe. The exact mechanism of how ICSs such as ARNUITY work in asthma is not known.
ARNUITY is not for, and should not be used to treat, sudden symptoms of asthma. ARNUITY won’t replace a rescue inhaler. ARNUITY is available by prescription only.
It may take up to 2 weeks or longer after starting ARNUITY to see maximum benefit.
