Once-daily BREO 100/25 is a prescription medicine used long term to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), including chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or both, for better breathing and fewer flare-ups. BREO is not used to relieve sudden breathing problems and won’t replace a rescue inhaler.
BREO helps improve lung function by opening up the airways in your lungs for a full 24 hours so you can breathe better. Your results may vary.
BREO is a combination of two medicines—an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) medicine called fluticasone furoate, and a long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (LABA) medicine called vilanterol—creating the first and only once-daily ICS/LABA that helps improve lung function for a full 24 hours. Your results may vary.
BREO helps reduce the number of flare-ups, also called exacerbations. This is when your symptoms are worse than usual for several days and require steroids (oral or injectable), antibiotics, and/or a hospital stay. Your results may vary.
Talk to your doctor to see if BREO can help with your COPD.
