Trelegy Ellipta is an asthma and COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) inhaler that combines fluticasone, umeclidinium, and vilanterol to relax the airways in the lungs and alleviate symptoms such as wheezing, fatigue, and shortness of breath. Fluticasone is a steroid that reduces inflammation in the lungs. Umeclidinium is an anticholinergic, which blocks certain neurotransmitters to relax the muscles in the airway. Finally, vilanterol is a bronchodilator that makes breathing easier by widening the airways. This medication does not work as a fast-acting inhaler and should not be used during an asthma or COPD attack.
Trelegy Ellipta should be taken exactly as your doctor prescribes. For more information, refer to the medication packaging and prescription label.
