Duaklir Genuair ((Aclidinium Bromide/Formoterol Fumarate Dihydrate) is a prescription inhaler that delivers the active ingredients directly into your lungs as you breathe in. This inhaler is used in adults who have difficulty breathing due to COPD, in which the airways and air sacs in the lungs become damaged or blocked. Aclidinium belongs to the class of drugs called anticholinergics and it works by relaxing the muscles around the airways and opens it up so you can breathe more easily. Formoterol belongs to the class of drugs known as long-acting inhaled beta-agonists (LABAs) and it works by opening up the air passages in the lungs to make breathing easier. This helps to reduce wheezing, coughing and shortness of breath. Duaklir Genuair is used as a regular maintenance treatment. The recommended dose of Duaklir Genuair is one inhalation twice a day.
