What are some COPD treatment options?

COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is a serious and progressive disease, but medication—including bronchodilators—may help manage its symptoms.

Some COPD Treatment Options

Bronchodilators help open the airways to make it easier to breathe.

Long-acting maintenance medicines are taken every day to control COPD but are not intended to treat sudden symptoms.

Short-acting rescue medicines are taken as needed for sudden symptoms.

Types of Bronchodilators

If you have COPD, nebulized LONHALA MAGNAIR may help manage your symptoms. Go to Why Consider LONHALA MAGNAIR to learn more.

Even if you are prescribed a maintenance medicine, you should always have a rescue inhaler with you to treat sudden symptoms. If you do not have a rescue inhaler, call your doctor to have one prescribed for you.

A maintenance medicine may help control your COPD symptoms long term. Talk to your doctor about your treatment plan.

What are some COPD devices available for treatment?

Most treatments for COPD are inhaled, either through a nebulizer system or handheld inhaler.

COPD Treatment Devices



A nebulizer is a machine with an air compressor and a small reservoir. Pressurized air is used to change the medication into a fine mist that can be inhaled while you breathe normally through a mouthpiece or mask. After each use, the nebulizer should be cleaned according to the manufacturer's instructions.



Inhaled COPD medications come in a variety of inhaler devices, including soft-mist inhalers, metered-dose inhalers, and dry-powder inhalers. Each type of inhaler delivers medicine in slightly different ways. Some of these devices require you to coordinate your breath with the activation of the device.
