4. Bottom Line

Trelegy Ellipta is approved for the once-daily treatment of adults with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or for adults with asthma. Trelegy Ellipta is an option for the treatment of asthma in patients not controlled on inhaled corticosteroids and long-acting beta agonists alone. It combines three medicines to improve lung function: fluticasone, a corticosteroid; vilanterol, a long-acting beta-agonist (LABA); and umeclidinium, an anticholinergic. Trelegy Ellipta is not used as a fast-acting inhaler for the relief of acute breathing emergencies.
