Who should not use Arcapta Neohaler?

Do not use Arcapta Neohaler (indacaterol) if you have asthma or if your chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) suddenly worsens.

Children should not use Arcapta Neohaler.

If you have heart problems, high blood pressure, seizures, thyroid problems or diabetes, do not use Arcapta Neohaler unless your doctor is aware of your condition and advises you to use it.

If you're pregnant, planning to become pregnant or nursing, only use Arcapta Neohaler if your doctor believes the relief you'll gain from the medication outweighs the risks. (It's not known if using an Arcapta Neohaler can harm an unborn baby or if the medication can pass into breast milk and harm a nursing baby.)

Indacaterol, the drug in Arcapta Neohaler, interacts with a number of other medications. Give your doctor a list of all medications you take so that he can make sure you aren't taking anything that could react badly with indacaterol. List all prescription and nonprescription drugs, herbal remedies and supplements.
