Using Trelegy

TRELEGY offers the convenience of once-daily dosing with 3 separate, long-acting medicines in 1 easy-to-use ELLIPTA inhaler. That means 1 single inhalation once a day gives you a full 24 hours of better breathing. Your results may vary. Just remember that if you stop taking TRELEGY, symptoms could return.

Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about what to expect from treatment or if you continue to have questions about how to use TRELEGY. TRELEGY is not a rescue medication and will not replace your rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. You should always have your rescue inhaler with you. If you don't have a rescue inhaler, contact your healthcare provider to have one prescribed for you.

Once-daily TRELEGY is a prescription medicine used long term to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), including chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or both, for better breathing and fewer flare-ups. TRELEGY is not used to relieve sudden breathing problems and won't replace a rescue inhaler. TRELEGY is not for asthma.

Long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (LABA) medicines such as vilanterol when used alone increase the risk of hospitalizations and death from asthma problems.
