BREO ELLIPTA 100/25 is a prescription medicine used to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), including chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or both. BREO ELLIPTA 100/25 is used long term as 1 inhalation 1 time each day to improve symptoms of COPD for better breathing and to reduce the number of flare-ups (the worsening of your COPD symptoms for several days). BREO is not used to relieve sudden breathing problems and won’t replace a rescue inhaler.
Once-daily BREO helps improve lung function by opening up the airways in your lungs for a full 24 hours to help improve COPD symptoms so you can breathe better. Your results may vary.
If you have a history of flare-ups (also known as exacerbations), BREO can help reduce your risk of future flare-ups. Flare-ups are when COPD symptoms are worse than usual for several days and require steroids (oral or injectable), antibiotics, and/or a hospital stay. Your results may vary.
BREO ELLIPTA combines an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) medicine, fluticasone furoate, and a long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (LABA) medicine, vilanterol.
Use 1 inhalation of BREO ELLIPTA 1 time each day. Use BREO ELLIPTA at the same time each day. If you miss a dose of BREO ELLIPTA, take it as soon as you remember. Do not take more than 1 inhalation per day. Take your next dose at your usual time. Do not take 2 doses at one time.
Common side effects of BREO 100/25 for COPD include:

Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to the FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.
Do not stop using BREO ELLIPTA unless told to do so by your healthcare provider, because your symptoms might get worse. Your healthcare provider will change your medicines as needed.
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is a condition that makes it hard to breathe, and worsens over time. COPD includes chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or both.
COPD could also include episodes called flare-ups, also known as exacerbations. Flare-ups are when your symptoms, like shortness of breath, coughing, mucus (sputum) production, and wheezing, are worse than usual. COPD flare-ups occur when symptoms become worse over several days.
