What is Incruse Ellipta?

Incruse Ellipta is a medication used to treat long-term lung diseases which are classed under the umbrella term chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Emphysema and bronchitis are among the conditions which can be treated with this medicine, which is taken via an inhaler. The main job of the treatment is to reduce the number of sudden attacks of breathlessness or wheezing.

How does Incruse Ellipta work?

Incruse Ellipta contains an active substance called umeclidinium bromide, which belongs to a group of medicines called bronchodilators. It helps treat COPD by relaxing the muscles in the lungs and airways, making it easier to breath which is crucial since COPD causes the airways and air-sacs in lungs to gradually become blocked or damaged.

When used regularly, this medication can help control breathing difficulties, reducing the chances of sudden attacks of breathlessness and reducing the impact COPD has on everyday life.

How do I take Incruse Ellipta?

Your doctor and product information leaflet should provide detailed instructions on how to use Incruse Ellipta correctly. This medication is for inhalation use, meaning you breath it into your lungs through your mouth with the aid of the inhaler device.

The recommended dose is typically one inhalation per day at around the same time each day. You only need to inhale this medication once during the day because its effects last for 24 hours.

Remember that Incruse Ellipta is a preventative measure and not a quick fix. It is not meant to be used to relieve a sudden attack of breathlessness or wheezing if such a thing occurs. If you do experience this sort of attack, you must use a quick-acting reliever inhaler (such as salbutamol).

When you’re prescribed Incruse Ellipta, it’s important to keep using it every day, as instructed by your doctor.

How long can I use the inhaler for?

The inhaler will be inside a sealed tray in order to protect it from moisture. The device should only be removed from the tray once you’re ready to use it for the first time. Once the tray is opened, the inhaler can be used for up to 6 weeks before it will need replacing with a new inhaler.

What are the side effects of Incruse Ellipta?

Side effects are possible when using this medication, although not all patients will experience any. The most commonly reported side effects include the following:

  • Faster heart beat
  • Cough
  • Headaches
  • Common cold
  • Frequent and painful urination
  • Infection in the nose and throat
  • Feeling of pressure or pain in the cheeks and forehead

Other side effects are possible but also rare when taking this medication. Some of the rare side effects can be very serious, however, so if you experience any side effects that are unsettling, you should seek medical help as soon as possible. One of the rare side effects of taking Incruse Ellipta is an allergic reaction, signs of which include itching and a skin rash. If you experience an allergic reaction, you should stop taking this medication and inform your doctor immediately. The same applies if you start having eye problems, your symptoms do not improve or you’ve started using your quick-acting reliever inhaler more often.

Can I use Incruse Ellipta?

This medication is for adults, so it should not be used by anyone below the age of 18. Before you begin using this medication, you may need to check with your doctor that certain conditions you may have won’t complicate the use of Incruse Ellipta. Speak to your doctor prior to using this treatment if any of the following apply to you:

  • You have asthma (Incruse Ellipta is not designed to treat asthma)
  • You have heart problems
  • You have an eye problem known as narrow-angle glaucoma
  • You have an enlarged prostate, difficulty passing urine or a blockage in your bladder
  • You have severe liver problems

What if I inhale too much Incruse Ellipta?

If you take more of this medicine than you should, contact your doctor or pharmacist immediately for advice as you may require medical attention. You may notice visual disturbances or that your heart is beating faster than usual and have a dry mouth too.

What if I forget a dose of Incruse Ellipta?

If you miss a dose of this medication, then simply take the next scheduled one at the usual time. Do not inhale twice as much medication as usual in one dosage to make up for a missed dose.

What if I want to stop using Incruse Ellipta?

Unless you experience a serious issue from using Incruse Ellipta or circumstances regarding your health change in a relevant way, you should only stop using his medication when your doctor instructs you to. It will only be effective in treating COPD as long as you keep using it, so you shouldn’t stop even if you are feeling better.
