Arformoterol Tartrate Dosage
There is only one standard arformoterol tartrate dosage, regardless of your age, weight, or other medical conditions. For treating COPD, the recommended dose is one vial inhaled using a nebulizer twice a day. Try to separate arformoterol tartrate doses by 12 hours, as taking them farther apart makes the drug less effective, and taking them closer together increases the risk of side effects.
There is only one standard dose of arformoterol tartrate (Brovana®), regardless of your age, weight, or other medical conditions. As is always the case, do not adjust your arformoterol tartrate dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
The recommended arformoterol tartrate dose for treating chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is one vial (15 mcg of arformoterol tartrate in 2 mL) inhaled using a nebulizer twice daily.
You will need to purchase or rent a nebulizer in order to use arformoterol tartrate. Nebulizers are small machines that convert liquid medications into tiny droplets that are just the right size to be inhaled into the airway. They are available in a wide range of sizes and prices.
Some considerations for people taking arformoterol tartrate include the following:
- Try to separate arformoterol tartrate doses by about 12 hours. Taking them farther apart makes the medication less effective, and taking them closer together increases the risk of arformoterol tartrate side effects.
- Make sure you know exactly how to measure the dose and how to use and clean the nebulizer.
- Unlike some other nebulizer medications, arformoterol tartrate vials are used without being diluted. It is not known whether it is safe to mix arformoterol tartrate together with other nebulizer solutions.
- For arformoterol tartrate to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. The medication will not work if you stop taking it.
- If you are unsure about anything related to arformoterol tartrate or your arformoterol tartrate dosage, please talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
