How to Use the ARCAPTA NEOHALER

ARCAPTA NEOHALER inhaler is designed to deliver all of the medicine contained in the blister-packaged capsules. The capsules are clear, so you can see the empty capsule; if the capsule is empty you have received the full dose. The capsules are not intended for oral use.

Read the step-by-step instructions for using ARCAPTA NEOHALER in the Medication Guide.

  • Use ARCAPTA NEOHALER 1 time each day at the same time of the day.
  • If you miss a dose of ARCAPTA NEOHALER, take it as soon as you remember. Do not take more than one dose in 24 hours.
  • Do not swallow ARCAPTA capsules. ARCAPTA capsules should always be used with the NEOHALER inhaler only.
  • Always use the new NEOHALER inhaler that is provided with each new prescription.
  • ARCAPTA NEOHALER does not relieve sudden symptoms of COPD. Always have a rescue inhaler medicine with you to treat sudden symptoms. If you do not have a rescue inhaler medicine, call your healthcare provider to have one prescribed for you.
  • Do not stop using ARCAPTA NEOHALER or other medicines to control or treat your COPD unless told to do so by your healthcare provider because your symptoms might get worse. Your healthcare provider will change your medicines as needed.
  • Do not use ARCAPTA NEOHALER:
    • more often than prescribed
    • more medicine than prescribed for you, or
    • with other LABA medicines
  • Call your health care provider or get emergency medical care right away if:
    • your breathing problems worsen with ARCAPTA NEOHALER
    • you need to use your rescue medicine more often than usual
    • your rescue inhaler medicine does not work as well for you at relieving your symptoms
