Asthma and other breathing disorders Eformoterol Fumarate Foradil

Uses
Foradil (Eformoterol Fumarate) is used as part of a long term treatment plan in patients suffering from lung diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), bronchitis and emphysema. It can help to prevent bronchospasm in patients affected by these conditions. The active ingredient in this medication (which may also be known as Formoterol) belongs to a class of drugs called LABAs (long-acting beta agonists) and it works by relaxing the air passages and opening them up, thereby making it easier for the patient to breathe. Doctors also prescribe this medication to treat asthma and to prevent wheezing and breathlessness caused by exercise.

Dosage and Administration
Foradil (Eformoterol Fumarate) is administered using the inhaler provided. Follow the instruction leaflet provided or ask your doctor if you are not fully sure of how to properly apply it. It is necessary to visit your doctor for a medical examination prior to using this product so that the correct and proper dosage can be prescribed. Only take the amount prescribed to you, and never exceed the dosage that you were told to take.

Adults patients treating COPD and asthma are usually told to inhale 1 capsule twice per day using the aerolizer (inhaler) provided. Doctors generally tell their patients to take their dose in the morning and evening. However, for those patients using this inhaler to prevent a bronchospasm caused by exercise, it is likely that the prescribing doctor will tell them to inhale 1 capsule at least 15 minutes prior to the commencement of exercise. It should not be used more than once every 12 hours, and patients should not take an additional pre-exercise dose if their doctor has already told them to use it twice per day.

Side effects
If your doctor has prescribed Foradil (Eformoterol Fumarate) for you to treat or manage a breathing condition, it is important to note that some side effects may occur, such as:

  • Cramps in the muscles
  • Tremors
  • A blocked or runny nose
  • Sore throat
  • An infection of the chest

While you are using this medication, it is important that you tell your doctor if any side effects become bothersome. In rare cases, this medication has been associated with serious and potentially harmful side effects. If you notice seizures, a worsening of asthma symptoms, pain in the chest, loss of consciousness, increased urination or any other side effects which are not listed here, you must immediately consult your doctor.

Precautions
Although it is considered to be rare, there have been cases of patients being treated for asthma with salmeterol (a type of medication similar to this one) suffering from serious breathing problems. There is a very slight risk of this occurring with this medication. Discuss the risks with your doctor before you begin using this medication.

If you suffer from or have ever suffered from heart problems, high blood pressure, diabetes, seizures or thyroid problems, it is important that you tell your doctor before you begin using this medication.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Foradil (Eformoterol Fumarate) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you suffer from any allergies.
  • If you suffer from any other health conditions or illnesses.
  • If you are using any other medicine (including all non-prescription).
  • If you are using any supplements, vitamins, or herbal products of any kind.
