but still have symptoms such as
wheezing and breathlessness. Taking
Foradil regularly together with inhaled
steroids will help to prevent breathing
problems.
Foradil is also used to treat breathing
problems in patients with chronic
obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

2. Things to consider before you
start to take Foradil

You should also ask yourself these
questions before taking Foradil. If the
answer to any of these questions is YES,
tell your doctor or pharmacist because
Foradil might not be the right medicine
for you.


Is this the only asthma medicine you
have?

Xanthines, for example theophylline or
aminophylline, which are a class of
medicines used to treat asthma and
chronic obstructive airways diseases



Do you have an overactive thyroid
gland?



Macrolides (for example Erythromycin)
used to treat bacterial infections.



Do you have an aneurysm (area where
an artery is swollen because the wall of
the artery is weak)?





Do you have a heart disorder, such as
abnormal electrical signal called
“prolongation of the QT interval”?

Anaesthetics like Halogenated
hydrocarbons (for example Halothane).
These drugs are used to produce
anaesthesia during surgery.



Anticholinergic drugs (for example
Ipratropium bromide) used to treat
gastrointestinal disorders and
genitourinary disorders.



Are you diabetic?



Do you have pheochromocytoma (a
tumor of the adrenal gland that can

Are you pregnant?

years of age.

Phenothiazines, which are a group of
medicines which control mental
disorders such as schizophrenia, mania,
psychotic conditions and anxiety

Some medicines can interfere with your
treatment. Make sure your doctor knows if
you are taking any of the following:



Sympathomimetic agents, which are
adrenaline-like medicines used to treat
asthma and nasal congestion



Some people MUST NOT take Foradil.
Talk to your doctor if:
you know you‟re allergic to Foradil, or if
you have ever had an unusual or allergic
reaction to formoterol or inhaled lactose

or wheezy while you are using Foradil,
you should continue to use it, but go to
see your doctor as soon as possible in
case you need another medicine
Treatment with Foradil may lead to your
blood level of potassium becoming too
low. This may make you more
susceptible to abnormal heart rhythm

When you have asthma you must also
be taking an inhaled steroid at the
same time as Foradil.

Will there be any problems with driving
or using machinery?

For the treatment of COPD (Chronic
Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)

In some patients, Foradil has been reported
to cause dizziness. If you feel dizzy, do not

label carefully. If you are not sure, ask your
doctor or pharmacist. Keep using the inhaler
for as long as you have been told unless

prescribed another medicine for this
purpose. If you are not sure about this,

How to use the capsules with the
Inhaler device
A child should be shown how to use the
inhaler correctly and should only use it with
the help of an adult.

Twist the mouthpiece
to the closed position
until it clicks.

Pull off the cap.

Hold the base of the
inhaler firmly and turn
the mouthpiece in the
direction of the arrow
on the bottom of the
mouthpiece to open.

Take one of today's
capsules out of the
blister strip. Place it in
the capsule-shaped
compartment in the
base of the inhaler. It
is important that you
remove the capsule
from the blister pack
only immediately
before you use it.

Keeping the inhaler
upright, firmly squeeze
the two blue buttons
once only.
This will pierce the
capsule. Release the
buttons. Although the
capsule is now
pierced, the powder
will not be released
until you inhale it.

You should hear the capsule spinning in the
inhaler. If you do not hear this whirring
noise, the capsule may be stuck in the
compartment. If this occurs, open the inhaler
and loosen the capsule by prising it out of
the compartment. Do not try to loosen the
capsule by repeatedly pressing the buttons.

4. Possible side effects

8. If you have heard the whirring noise,
hold your breath for as long as you
comfortably can while taking the inhaler
out of your mouth. Then breathe
normally. Open the inhaler to see if any
powder is still in the capsule. If there is
still powder in the capsule repeat steps 6
to 8.

Stop using Foradil and tell your doctor
straight away if you notice:

Foradil is suitable for most people, but
like all medicines, it can sometimes cause
side effects.
Some side effects can be serious





9. After use, tip out the empty capsule
and close the mouthpiece.
10. Replace the cap.

Bronchospasm with wheezing or
coughing and difficulty in breathing. This
might affect up to 1 in 100 people.
An allergic reaction such as if you feel
faint (you might have low blood
pressure), have a rash, or experience
itching or facial swelling. This might
affect less than 1 in 10,000 people.

Place the mouthpiece
in your mouth and
tilt your head slightly
backwards. Close
your lips around
the mouthpiece and
breathe in as quickly
and as deeply as you
can. As you breathe
in, you will inhale the
medicine into your
lungs.



Very occasionally, very small pieces of the
capsule shell can get in the mouth. If this
happens, you may be able to feel these
pieces on your tongue. The capsule shell is
made of gelatin which is harmless to
humans, and will soften or dissolve in the
mouth and be swallowed. The chances of
this happening will be increased if the
capsule is pierced many times (Step 5);
hence it is recommended that you do this
only once for each capsule.



If you feel you have an irregular heart
beat or a fast heart beat. This might
affect up to 1 in 10 people.



If you feel a crushing chest pain
(symptoms of angina pectoris). This
might affect less than 1 in 1000 people.

What if you forget to take a dose?

Breathe out fully.

11. If you need to clean the inhaler, wipe the
mouthpiece and capsule compartment
with a dry cloth or a clean soft brush.

Headache, tremor, palpitations.

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you
remember. Then go on as before. Do not
double the dose.

Up to 1 in 100 people have experienced:

What if you take too much?
If you, or anyone else, accidentally takes
too much, tell your doctor or your nearest
hospital casualty department immediately.
Take your medicine pack with you so that
people can see what you have taken.

If you feel you have muscle weakness,
muscle spasms or an abnormal heart
rhythm (these could mean you have a
low blood potassium level).

The side effects listed below have also
been reported.
Up to 1 in 10 people have experienced:

Agitation, anxiety, feeling nervous,
difficulties with sleeping, dizziness, fast
heart beat, throat irritation, muscle cramps,
muscle pain, worsening of asthma.
Very rare side effects (likely to affect less
than 1 in 10,000 patients):
Nausea, distorted sense of taste, swelling of
hands, ankles or feet, variations in blood
pressure.

It is not known how frequently these
effects may happen:
Excessive thirst, frequent urination and
tiredness over an extended period of time (a
possible indication of high blood sugar).
Headache and dizziness (symptoms of high
blood pressure), cough and rash.
Some of these effects may wear off as you
get used to the medicine.
If any of the symptoms become
troublesome, or if you notice anything
else not mentioned here, please go and
see your doctor. He/she may want to give
you a different medicine.
