Brovana Drug Information
Arformoterol is used as a long-term (maintenance) treatment to prevent and decrease wheezing and shortness of breath caused by breathing problems (such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, including chronic bronchitis and emphysema). Arformoterol belongs to the class of drugs known as long-acting beta agonists (LABAs). Arformoterol is also known as a bronchodilator. It works in the airways by opening breathing passages and relaxing muscles. Controlling symptoms of breathing problems can decrease time lost from work or school. Brovana does not work right away and should not be used for sudden attacks of breathing trouble. Your doctor must prescribe a quick-relief medicine/inhaler (such as albuterol, also known as salbutamol) for sudden shortness of breath while you are using arformoterol. You should always have a quick-relief inhaler with you. Arformoterol is not approved to treat asthma. People with asthma using long-acting inhaled beta agonists (such as arformoterol) without also using an inhaled corticosteroid may have an increased risk of serious (sometimes fatal) breathing problems.
Rarely, asthma patients using long-acting inhaled beta agonists (such as salmeterol) have had serious (sometimes fatal) asthma-related breathing problems. Because arformoterol is similar to salmeterol, it may also cause these problems. Therefore, patients with asthma should only be prescribed Brovana if one long-term medication (such as inhaled corticosteroids) does not control breathing problems or if more than one long-term medication is clearly needed to control breathing problems. Arformoterol must not be used alone to treat asthma. Discuss the risks and benefits of treatment with Brovana with your doctor.
How to Use Brovana
Read the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you start using Brovana and each time you get a refill. Brovana is used with a special machine called a nebulizer that changes the solution to a fine mist that you inhale. Learn how to prepare the solution and use the nebulizer properly. If a child is using Brovana, a parent or other responsible adult may need to help the child use the nebulizer properly. If you have any questions, ask your doctor, pharmacist, or respiratory therapist. Brovana should be clear and colorless. Before using, check Brovana visually for particles or discoloration. If either is present, do not use the liquid. Using the nebulizer, inhale Brovana into your lungs as directed by your doctor, usually 2 times a day (once in the morning and once in the evening). The 2 doses should be about 12 hours apart. Each treatment usually takes about 5 to 10 minutes. Use Brovana only through a nebulizer. Do not swallow or inject the solution. Do not mix with other medicines in the nebulizer. To prevent infections, clean the nebulizer and mouthpiece/face mask according to the manufacturer's directions. Use Brovana regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same times each day. The Dosage of Brovana is based on your medical condition, age, and response to treatment. Do not use more of Brovana or use it more often than prescribed since this may cause serious side effects. Do not use more than 30 micrograms of arformoterol a day. If you have been using a quick-relief inhaler (albuterol, salbutamol) on a regular daily schedule (such as 4 times daily), your doctor will direct you to stop this schedule and only use the quick-relief inhaler as needed for sudden shortness of breath. Consult your doctor for details. Learn which of your inhalers/medications you should use every day and which you should use if your breathing suddenly worsens (quick-relief drugs). Ask your doctor ahead of time what you should do if you have new or worsening cough or shortness of breath, wheezing, increased sputum, worsening peak flow meter readings, waking up at night with trouble breathing, if you use your quick-relief inhaler more often (more than 2 days a week), or if your quick-relief inhaler does not seem to be working well. Learn when you can treat sudden breathing problems by yourself and when you must get medical help right away. Tell your doctor if your symptoms do not improve or if they worsen.
Before using arformoterol, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to formoterol; or if you have any other allergies. Brovana may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Brovana, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,diabetes, heart problems (such as irregular heartbeat, angina, previous heart attack), high blood pressure, liver problems, seizures, overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism), swelling of an artery (aneurysm), a certain tumor of the adrenal gland (pheochromocytoma). Arformoterol may cause a condition that affects the heart rhythm (QT prolongation). QT prolongation can rarely cause serious (rarely fatal) fast/irregular heartbeat and other symptoms (such as severe dizziness, fainting) that need medical attention right away. The risk of QT prolongation may be increased if you have certain medical conditions or are taking other drugs that may cause QT prolongation. Before using arformoterol,certain heart problems (heart failure, slow heartbeat, QT prolongation in the EKG), family history of certain heart problems (QT prolongation in the EKG, sudden cardiac death). Low levels of potassium or magnesium in the blood may also increase your risk of QT prolongation. This risk may increase if you use certain drugs (such as diuretics/"water pills") or if you have conditions such as severe sweating, diarrhea, or vomiting. Talk to your doctor about using arformoterol safely. Brovana may make you dizzy. Alcohol or marijuana (cannabis) can make you more dizzy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs alertness until you can do it safely. Limit alcoholic beverages. Talk to your doctor if you are using marijuana (cannabis). Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). Older adults may be more sensitive to the side effects of Brovana, especially QT prolongation (see above). During pregnancy, Brovana should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. It is unknown if Brovana passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
If you miss a dose of Brovana, use it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Use your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.
Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval. Do not use other LABA drugs (such as formoterol, salmeterol) while using Brovana.
