Duaklir Genuair is found to be effective for treating COPD when used regularly.
Duaklir Genuair contains two active ingredients - aclidinium bromide and formoterol fumarate dihydrate. These help keep the airways open, thus allowing the patient to breathe easily.
Aclidinium bromide is a long-acting muscarinic antagonist. It blocks the muscarinic (also known as cholinergic) receptors in the muscle cells of the lungs. These receptors are responsible for controlling the contraction of muscles. When aclidinium bromide is inhaled, this medicine helps the muscles of the airways to relax and stay open. Therefore, a patient can breathe more easily.
Formoterol is a long-acting beta-2 agonist. This medicine attaches to receptors present inside the muscles of the airways which are known as beta-2 receptors. As a result, the muscles relax and a patient is able to breathe more easily.
The usual recommended dose of Duaklir Genuair is one metered dose administered twice a day through the inhaler.
Duaklir Genuair is taken as an inhalation powder in a portable inhaler device. This inhalation powder is a combination of 340 micrograms of aclidinium and 12 micrograms of formoterol fumarate dihydrate for each metered-dose, delivered through the inhaler device. The package provided with the leaflet gives a detailed description of how to use the inhaler device. Do follow the instructions exactly as described.
