I have moderate asthma and control it with Singulair (allergies & asthma), and Advair inhaled medication. My doctor recently prescribed me BREO instead of Advair and will soon be switching. I am wondering if anyone else has experiences A) with BREO B) with advair and/or BREO and if theyve ever switched between the two C) uses any of these medications for asthma (vs COPD).
From the top of the web site, mybreo.com--IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
BREO ELLIPTA is only approved for use in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). BREO is NOT approved for use in asthma. People with asthma who take long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (LABA) medicines, such as vilanterol (one of the medicines in BREO), have an increased risk of death from asthma problems. It is not known if LABA medicines increase the risk of death in people with COPD.
