How Does Aclidinium Work?

Aclidinium belongs to a group of medications known as anticholinergics. By binding to specific receptors in the airway called muscarinic receptors, aclidinium helps to relax the smooth muscle of the airway. As a long-acting medication, it helps to prevent bronchospasms, helping to keep the airways open, with just two doses each day.
 

Clinical Effects

Aclidinium was studied in the treatment of COPD. People using this medication showed improved lung function, compared to those not using it. In addition, these studies showed that the effects of each dose lasted for at least 12 hours, and people who used the medication were less likely to need doses of "rescue" inhalers, such as albuterol.
