For patients who do not respond adequately to TRELEGY ELLIPTA 100/62.5/25 mcg once daily, increasing the dose to TRELEGY ELLIPTA 200/62.5/25 mcg once daily may provide additional improvement in asthma control.

If asthma symptoms arise in the period between doses, an inhaled, short-acting beta2-agonist (rescue medicine, e.g., albuterol) should be taken for immediate relief.
