How effective are Seebri Inhalation Capsules 50mcg from Japan?
Seebri inhalation capsules contain glycopyrronium bromide, a long acting muscarinic receptor antagonist. It helps to improve respiratory function by dilating bronchi over a long time. Studies have shown that glycopyrronium produces rapid and sustained bronchodilation with an efficacy similar to tiotropium and is well tolerated, with a low incidence of muscarinic side effects (Anoop Prakash, K. Suresh Babu, Jaymin B. Morjaria. Profile of inhaled glycopyrronium bromide as monotherapy and in fixed-dose combination with indacaterol maleate for the treatment of COPD. International Journal of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, 2015; 10: 111–123).
Who should use Seebri Inhalation Capsules 50mcg?
Seebri inhalation capsules are effective for the treatment of patients with moderate to severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (chronic bronchitis, emphysema). This medicine relieves symptoms caused by airway obstructive disorder. The capsules should be routinely inhaled every day, therefore, the medicine does not provide prompt relief of acute progression of the symptoms.
