Arnuity Ellipta Dosage
Medically reviewed by Drugs.com. Last updated on Jan 31, 2022.
Generic name: FLUTICASONE FUROATE 50ug
Dosage form: inhalation powder
ARNUITY ELLIPTA should be administered only by the orally inhaled route [see Instructions for Use leaflet]. After inhalation, the patient should rinse his/her mouth with water without swallowing to help reduce the risk of oropharyngeal candidiasis.
If symptoms arise between doses, an inhaled, short-acting beta2-agonist should be used for immediate relief.
The maximum benefit may not be achieved for up to 2 weeks or longer after starting treatment. Individual patients may experience a variable time to onset and degree of symptom relief.
ARNUITY ELLIPTA should be administered as 1 inhalation once daily by the orally inhaled route. ARNUITY ELLIPTA should be used at the same time every day. Do not use ARNUITY ELLIPTA more than 1 time every 24 hours.
Adults and Adolescents Aged 12 Years and Older
The starting dosage for ARNUITY ELLIPTA should be based upon patients’ asthma severity. The usual recommended starting dose for adults and adolescents aged 12 years and older not on an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) is 100 mcg. For other adults and adolescents aged 12 years and older, the starting dose should be based on previous asthma drug therapy and disease severity. For adults and adolescents aged 12 years and older who do not respond to ARNUITY ELLIPTA 100 mcg after 2 weeks of therapy, replacement with ARNUITY ELLIPTA 200 mcg may provide additional asthma control.
If a dosage regimen of ARNUITY ELLIPTA fails to provide adequate control of asthma, the therapeutic regimen should be re-evaluated and additional therapeutic options, e.g., replacing the current strength of ARNUITY ELLIPTA with a higher strength, initiating an ICS and long-acting beta2-agonist (LABA) combination product, or initiating oral corticosteroids, should be considered.
The highest recommended daily dose in adults and adolescents aged 12 years and older is 200 mcg.
After asthma stability has been achieved, it is desirable to titrate to the lowest effective dosage to help reduce the possibility of side effects.
Pediatric Patients Aged 5 to 11 Years
The recommended dosage for children aged 5 to 11 years is 50 mcg administered once daily [see Warnings and Precautions (5.10)].
