Indacaterol Maleate

When and How to Use This Medicine

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with indacaterol maleate include the following:
  • This medication is inhaled into the lungs once a day. It does not matter what time of day you use it, as long as it is at the same time each day.
  • Indacaterol maleate comes in capsule form, although these capsules are never to be swallowed (they are not effective if swallowed). They are used in the indacaterol maleate Neohaler™. The Neohaler punctures the capsule, and then the powder is inhaled using your own breath.

  • For indacaterol maleate to work properly, it must be used as prescribed.
