Dosage form: inhalation powder
Drug class: Inhaled corticosteroids

Medically reviewed by Last updated on Oct 18, 2023.


Administer 1 actuation of ARNUITY ELLIPTA once daily by oral inhalation.
After inhalation, the patient should rinse his/her mouth with water without swallowing to help reduce the risk of oropharyngeal candidiasis.
ARNUITY ELLIPTA should be used at the same time every day. Do not use ARNUITY ELLIPTA more than 1 time every 24 hours.
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.

No dosage adjustment is required for geriatric patients, patients with renal impairment, or patients with mild hepatic impairment [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].

Recommended Dosage

Adult and Pediatric Patients Aged 12 Years and Older

The recommended starting dosage for adult and pediatric patients aged 12 years and older not on an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) is fluticasone furoate 100 mcg (1 actuation of ARNUITY ELLIPTA 100 mcg) once daily by oral inhalation.

For other adult and pediatric patients aged 12 years and older, the recommended starting dosage should be based on previous asthma drug therapy and disease severity.
For adult and pediatric patients 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.
The maximum recommended dosage in adult and pediatric patients aged 12 years and older is ARNUITY ELLIPTA 200 mcg once daily.
If asthma symptoms arise in the period between doses, an inhaled, short-acting beta2-agonist (rescue medicine, e.g., albuterol) should be used for immediate relief.
If a previously effective dosage regimen of ARNUITY ELLIPTA fails to provide adequate improvement in asthma control, 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, initiating oral corticosteroids) should be considered.
After asthma stability has been achieved, it is desirable to titrate to the lowest effective dosage to help reduce the possibility of adverse reactions.

Pediatric Patients Aged 5 to 11 Years

The recommended dosage for pediatric patients aged 5 to 11 years is fluticasone furoate 50 mcg (1 actuation of ARNUITY ELLIPTA 50 mcg) once daily by oral inhalation [see Warnings and Precautions (5.10)].
