Onbrez breezhaler (Indacaterol) is a prescription medication used to make breathing easier for adult patients with breathing difficulties due to a lung disease called chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), such as chronic bronchitis and emphysema. In COPD, the muscles around the airways tighten, making breathing difficult. The active ingredient in Onbrez breezhaler is Indacaterol. Indacaterol belongs to a class of drugs called bronchodilators. It works by relaxing the muscles in the lungs, making it easier for air to get in and out of the lungs.
We currently offer the brand Onbrez breezhaler from the United Kingdom manufactured by Novartis in the strength of 150 mcg capsules with device. The generic Indacaterol is not available.
