Table of contents:

ANORO ELLIPTA (is a prescription medication used to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It is a combination of two medicines, an anticholinergic (umeclidinium) and long-acting beta agonist (vilanterol). It contains two active ingredients, umeclidinium bromide and vilanterol, which work together to improve lung function and reduce flare-ups of the illness

ANORO ELLIPTA is not indicated for the treatment of asthma, and it should not be used as a rescue medication for sudden symptoms of COPD. It is just an inhalation powder prescribed to help people with COPD breathe more easily.

Vilanterol is a long-acting beta-2 adrenergic agonist and acts by getting attached to beta-2 adrenergic receptors present in the airway muscles. Umeclidinium is a muscarinic receptor antagonist. It works by blocking other receptors called muscarinic receptors, which control the contraction of muscles. Together, the active substances in Anoro Ellipta work in different ways to widen the airways and improve breathing in COPD.
