Some COPD Treatment Options

There are many treatments currently available for COPD. Your doctor will decide what the best treatment option is for you based on the severity of your symptoms. One category of medicine used to treat COPD includes bronchodilators.

BRONCHODILATORS

Bronchodilators are the core of COPD treatment, which makes them likely to be part of any treatment plan. They help relax the muscles around the airways in your lungs, helping to open them up.

They come in short-acting and long-acting forms.

  • Short-acting bronchodilators are used for “rescue” treatment for quick relief of sudden symptoms
  • Long-acting bronchodilators are used for “maintenance” treatment of chronic, long-term symptoms

Long-acting bronchodilators include LABAs (long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonists) and LAMAs (long-acting muscarinic antagonists). BEVESPI AEROSPHERE contains both a LABA and a LAMA. When taken long-term as directed, it helps open your airways and keep them open. It is not a rescue inhaler and not for use to treat sudden COPD symptoms.

OTHER MANAGEMENT MEASURES

Your doctor may recommend other treatments such as vaccines, other medicines, lifestyle changes, and a variety of non-medicinal COPD treatments to help manage your COPD.
