What Is Aclidinium Used For?

How Does It 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 per day.
 

Can Children Use Aclidinium?

Aclidinium is not approved for use in children, as it has not been studied in this age group. Make sure to talk to your healthcare provider about using this medication in children.
 

What About Off-Label Uses?

On occasion, healthcare providers may recommend medications for treating something other than the officially approved uses. This is called an "off-label" use. At this time, there are no universally accepted off-label aclidinium uses.
