SEEBRI NEOHALER: proven* to help prevent your COPD symptoms.
SEEBRI NEOHALER is an anticholinergic medicine known as glycopyrrolate.
- Anticholinergic medicines such as SEEBRI NEOHALER help the muscles around the airways in your lungs stay relaxed to prevent symptoms such as wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath. This makes it hard to breathe.
- SEEBRI NEOHALER is used for maintenance treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). COPD is a chronic lung disease that includes chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or both.
- SEEBRI NEOHALER is for long-term use and should be taken 2 times each day to improve symptoms of COPD for better breathing.
- SEEBRI NEOHALER is not used to treat sudden symptoms of COPD. Always have a short-acting beta2-agonist medicine (rescue inhaler) with you to treat sudden symptoms of COPD. If you do not have a rescue inhaler, contact your healthcare provider to have one prescribed for you.
