What is the Utibron Neohaler?

Utibron Neohaler is a combination of two drugs, indacaterol and glycopyrrolate, intended to treat patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (including emphysema and chronic bronchitis). It is an inhaled medication that acts as a bronchodilator and an anticholinergic, drugs that prevent and ease the muscles around the bronchi in the lungs, increasing airflow. It is prescribed for twice a day use, in the morning and evening. The medication comes in a capsule, which is meant to be used with the Neohaler; a capsule is inserted in the device and the contents inhaled. Follow package directions carefully. Utibron is not a rescue medication, to be used when breathing is difficult, and should not be used by patients with asthma, who have died from the use of drugs similar to indacaterol. Side effects may include inflammation of the nasal passages and elevated blood pressure. Beta blockers may decrease effectiveness.
