Frequently asked questions about umeclidinium
What is umeclidinium used to treat?
Umeclidinium is prescribed to help patients control the symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease - a group of diseases that includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis.
Chronic bronchitis is long-term inflammation of the bronchioles and is characterized by productive coughing that occurs over several months. Chronic bronchitis may be caused by smoking tobacco products, air pollution, or allergens and may lead to COPD.
Common symptoms of bronchitis include:
- Shortness of breath
- Low-grade fever
- Mucus production (usually yellowish or green in color)
- Chest pain
Emphysema is a condition in which the air sacs in your lungs have become damaged. This can be caused by smoking, inhaling harmful chemicals, and regular exposure to air pollution. Emphysema is most commonly characterized by chronic shortness of breath that can lead to additional adverse symptoms.
How does umeclidinium work?
Umeclidinium belongs to a classification of medication known as anticholinergics. These medications help relax the muscles that surround the airways in the lungs (known as the bronchi) to help prevent symptoms of lung damage and lung disease.
Symptoms of these conditions commonly occur after exercise or exposure to an irritant (such as secondhand smoke or airborne allergens). Medications such as umeclidinium help people mitigate and prevent the symptoms listed above by relaxing the muscles that surround the airways, which encourages airflow to and from the lungs. Umeclidinium does not cure lung disease, but it can improve quality of life and prevent potentially severe breathing problems in patients managing COPD.

As with all prescription medication, be sure to inform the prescribing doctor about any medical conditions you have been previously diagnosed with and any medication/ supplements you are currently taking before taking umeclidinium. Umeclidinium can interact with other forms of medication and substances, causing potentially serious side effects. In addition, let your doctor know if you are planning to become pregnant, are pregnant, or are currently breastfeeding before starting treatment with this medication.
What is the typical starting dose of umeclidinium?
The specific dosage of umeclidinium will vary depending on the condition requiring treatment. Talk to your health care provider about how to administer umeclidinium correctly and how often to inhale the medication. For most adults and children over 6 managing COPD, one puff of umeclidinium should be inhaled once a day. Do not take more than one inhalation of umeclidinium per day. It is recommended that you take umeclidinium at the same time every day.
Do not discontinue or increase your dosage of umeclidinium without consulting your doctor first. Take the medication exactly as prescribed, and inform your doctor if you begin to experience any side effects while taking the medication.
