Arcapta Neohaler (Indacaterol)
Arcapta Neohaler (Indacaterol) is used to treat trouble breathing and wheezing due to a certain ongoing lung disease (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease-COPD, including chronic bronchitis and/or emphysema). It is used if your breathing problems are not controlled with other medication (such as a quick-relief inhaler). Indacaterol belongs to the class of drugs known as long-acting beta agonists (LABAs). Indacaterol is also known as a bronchodilator. It works by relaxing the muscles around the airways so that they open up and you can breathe more easily. This medication should not be used for severe/sudden breathing problems.
Before You Use The Medication
You should not use indacaterol if you are allergic to it. Indacaterol is for use only in people with COPD and should not be used to treat asthma. Tell your doctor if you have ever had: heart disease, high blood pressure; diabetes; a seizure; a thyroid disorder; or galactose intolerance, or severe problems with lactose (milk sugar). Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Indacaterol is not approved for use by anyone younger than 18 years old.
How To Use
Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets. Use the medicine exactly as directed. Using too much of this medicine can cause life-threatening side effects. Indacaterol is not a rescue medicine for bronchospasm attacks. Use only fast-acting inhalation medicine for an attack. Seek medical attention if your breathing problems get worse quickly, or if you think your medications are not working as well. Read and carefully follow any Instructions for Use provided with your medicine. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you do not understand these instructions. Do not take an indacaterol capsule by mouth. It is for use only in the Neohaler device. Arcapta Neohaler is a powder that comes with a special inhaler device and blister packs containing capsules of the medicine. You will load one capsule into the inhaler device each time you use the medicine. Pushing the buttons on the side of the Neohaler device will pierce the capsule and release the medicine into the inhaler chamber. You may have a mild cough for about 15 seconds after using the inhaler. Store at room temperature away from moisture, heat, and light. Keep each capsule in the blister pack until you ready to load your inhaler device. Do not try to wash or take apart the Neohaler device. You may use a tissue to wipe the mouthpiece after each use. Throw away the device when your capsules run out. Always use the inhaler device that comes with each new prescription. You should not stop using indacaterol suddenly. Stopping suddenly may make your condition worse.
Get emergency medical help if you have signs of an allergic reaction to Arcapta: hives; difficult breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Call your doctor at once if you have: tremors, nervousness, chest pain, fast or pounding heartbeats; wheezing, choking, or other breathing problems after using the Neohaler; worsening breathing problems; high blood sugar – increased thirst, increased urination, dry mouth, fruity breath odor; or low potassium level – leg cramps, constipation, irregular heartbeats, fluttering in your chest, numbness or tingling, muscle weakness or limp feeling. Common Arcapta side effects may include: runny nose; cough, sore throat; nausea; or headache.
