What BREZTRI is for
What is the approved use for BREZTRI?
BREZTRI is a prescription medicine used long term to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). COPD is a chronic lung disease that includes chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or both. BREZTRI is used long term as 2 inhalations 2 times each day (2 puffs in the morning and 2 puffs in the evening) to improve symptoms of COPD for better breathing* and to reduce the number of flare-ups (the worsening of your COPD symptoms for several days). BREZTRI is not used to relieve sudden breathing problems and won't replace a rescue inhaler. BREZTRI is not for the treatment of asthma.

What are COPD flare-ups?
A COPD flare-up—also known as an exacerbation—is a sudden worsening of your COPD symptoms that result in additional treatment. If your COPD symptoms have been bad enough that you’ve had to get extra medical attention—such as being prescribed steroids or antibiotics—you’ve probably experienced a moderate COPD flare-up. If you’ve had to seek emergency care or have been hospitalized because of your COPD, you’ve probably experienced a severe COPD flare-up. That’s important to know because COPD flare-ups may cause permanent lung damage, but knowing the signs and symptoms could allow you to identify them—and then help prevent them.
Who should not take BREZTRI?
BREZTRI is not used to relieve sudden breathing problems and will not replace a rescue inhaler. It is not for the treatment of asthma. Do not use BREZTRI if you are allergic to budesonide, glycopyrrolate, formoterol, or any of the ingredients in BREZTRI.
