What Is Oxis Turbohaler?

Oxis Turbohaler is an inhaler used for the treatment of asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). It contains a bronchodilator which relieves inflammation and swelling in the lungs and airways of the people with asthma or other breathing problems and helps them breathe easily.

Oxis is usually prescribed to people with special cases of asthma which cannot be treated by the corticosteroid inhaler (preventer) which is usually prescribed along with a reliever inhaler (e.g salbutamol).

How Does Oxis Turbohaler Work?

Oxis Turbohaler contains formoterol fumarate dihydrate as its active ingredient. This compound belongs to a group of medicines called bronchodilators or long-acting beta 2 agonists (LABAs). This substance works on beta 2 receptors in the lungs. Stimulation of these receptor cause relaxing of the muscles of airways and lungs making it easier to breathe. Oxis Turbohaler is taken regularly as it helps the airways to remain wide and open. Bronchodilators are only used with corticosteroids for the treatment of asthma.

In COPD the airways become narrowed and it is difficult to breathe, regular intake of Oxis keep the airways open which makes breathing easier.
