The primary difference between Lonhala Magnair and Seebri Neohaler is the dosage form and how they are administered to the patient.

Lonhala Magnair is delivered as a nebulized solution for inhalation via the Magnair nebulizer. The Seebri Neohaler consists of dry-powder inhalation capsules placed into a hand-held device and inhaled.

Both products are prescription treatments from Sunovion Pharmaceuticals that contain glycopyrrolate, an anticholinergic, long-acting muscarinic antagonist (LAMA) bronchodilator for the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) of the lung, including chronic bronchitis and/or emphysema.

How is Lonhala Magnair given?

The Lonhala Magnair technology was developed to allow a quiet, portable, closed system nebulizer that can deliver glycopyrrolate in 2 to 3 minutes with normal breathing while using the device. Each 1 mL unit-dose vial of the Lonhala Magnair aqueous solution contains 25 mcg of glycopyrrolate. The Seebri Neohaler consists of capsules that contain 15.6 mcg of glycopyrrolate and the hand-held inhalation device; the capsules are used in the device and not taken by mouth. Both products are used twice daily (in the morning and evening) at the same time every day.
