Information about Rotacap. Duova 12mcg/18mcg

Duova Rotacaps are inhalation capsules that contain a combination of two bronchodlators, formoterol and tiotropium used for long-term treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Formoterol is a bronchodilator while Tiotropium is an anticholinergic. They work by relaxing the muscles in the airways and widen the airways. Together, they make breathing easier.

Duova Rotacaps contain a combination treatment used for the long-term maintenance treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which is a progressive obstructive airways disease that usually gets worse with time. COPD has symptoms similar to asthma caused by bronchospasm, including tightness of the chest, wheezing and shortness of breath, as well as chronic cough with sputum production because the lung tissues have become damaged. Duova Rotacaps provides improved action to open airways and improve breathing, which helps relieve symptoms, where a single medication has not been sufficiently effective.
