This combination product contains two medications glycopyrronium and Indacaterol. Glycopyrronium belongs to the group of medications known as anticholinergics. Indacaterol belongs to the group of medications known as long-acting bronchodilators. These medications work in different ways to relax the muscles in the walls of the small air passages in the lungs, keeping the air passage open and making it easier to breathe.
Ultibro Breezhaler is used for the maintenance treatment of COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) (COPD), including emphysema and chronic Bronchitis. Regular daily use is important for Ultibro Breezhaler to be effective. Ultibro Breezhaler is also used to help prevent flare-ups (worsening of symptoms) for people who have COPD and have a history of these events. It will not relieve an episode of increased difficulty breathing.
Ultibro Breezhaler may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Ultibro Breezhaler may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Ultibro Breezhaler. Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take.

These factors may affect how you should use Ultibro Breezhaler.

Heart rhythm: Glycopyrronium - indacaterol can cause changes to the normal rate and rhythm of the heart, including an irregular heartbeat called QT prolongation. QT prolongation is a serious life-threatening condition that can cause fainting, seizures, and sudden death. If you are at risk for heart rhythm problems (e.g., people with heart failure, Angina, low potassium or magnesium levels), or taking other medications that can cause heart rhythm problems, discuss with your doctor how Ultibro Breezhaler may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Ultibro Breezhaler, and whether any special monitoring is needed.
Kidney function: Kidney Disease or reduced kidney function may cause Ultibro Breezhaler to build up in the body, causing side effects.
